Rail station upgrades in Southwark and Lambeth

Caroline had a fantastic afternoon visiting the major upgrade schemes happening at Denmark Hill, Peckham Rye and Tulse Hill stations.

The first stop was Denmark Hill, with its fab artwork led by the the Camberwell Society and the new entrance onto Windsor Walk that will open this summer.

Next was Peckham Rye Station, to see and discuss the plans to restore the station and importantly make it step-free.

Tactile paving at stations is such a crucial and basic safety measure

The London Assembly has unanimously passed Caroline Pidgeon's motion calling for all stations in London have tactile paving installed within 4 years passed.

This is a crucial and basic safety measure for blind and visually impaired people.

Caroline said:

"It is nothing less than a scandal that one third of train platforms in London and around the country are so unsafe, especially for blind and visually impaired people.
