Streatham stations to receive £140,000 for passenger benefits

Streatham's three rail stations are in line to receive £140,000 from a Passenger Benefit Fund set up by Govia Thameslink following the disruption to rail services in summer 2018 during the introduction of timetable changes.

Over the next few months local people can contribute suggestions to how money should be spent to make tangible improvements for passengers. Streatham is to receive £80,000 with Streatham Hill and Streatham Common each in line for £30,000.

A priority for Streatham must be work to improve acccibility to the platforms - which can currently only be reached by stairs.

This is not currently on the list of suggestions which include:
  • fitting solar panels to stations
  • environmental options such as 'living plant wall' or 'bee garden'
  • toilet improvements
  • extra seating
  • extra vending machines
  • extra cycle parking and security
  • extra customer information screens
