Refurbishment scheme to start at Huntingdon railway station

A £60,000 facelift is being given to the ticket hall at Huntingdon railway station.

Work on the full refurbishment is scheduled to start on Monday and last until 10 June and will take place at night to minimise disruption to passengers.

First Capital Connect, which is behind the refurbishment scheme, said the booking office would be closing at 7pm, an hour earlier than usual, to allow contractors to maximise the time they have on the job.

Passengers will also have to use the night exit behind the station building.

The station, which dates back to 1850 and is Grade II listed, is used by nearly 1.7 million passengers a year.

Work includes renewing wood panelling, removal of redundant fittings and cabling, new lighting will be fitted with heritage-style lamps outside and a full repaint.

Keith Jipps, from First Capital Connect, said: “This is a great project. Passengers are going to benefit from new flooring which will reduce the risk of slips and trips and the new paint and lighting will give the station a much smarter, lighter feel to the entire station.”
