It seems the powers that be are very keen to regenerate London’s busiest stations with works already beginning on Waterloo, King’s Cross and as of next week, Victoria.
As one of London’s busiest stations Victoria is known for having some of the longest ticket queues in London but also for having more delays and suspensions that most of us can really bare. However thanks to a new upgrade programme this could all be about to change.
Now. Before you get too excited, the work wont be completed until 2018 meaning four long years of works are ahead of us but once it is done it could make everyones lives that bit easier.
So what’s the plan? Well as of Monday (24th September) the stairway from Wilton Road leading to the station will be closed. Then in October pedestrian access from the front of the station will be shut as will the Victory Arch entrance. Lastly from 1st October the taxi rank out the front of the station will be moved just around the corner to Hudson’s Place.
Don’t say you haven’t been warned.
