Transport for London is considering a development scheme to improve both the transport facilities and surroundings of Harrow on the Hill station.
It has earmarked the railway station and neighbouring bus station for ‘significant improvement’ including step-free access and more buses. It says the one-hectare site around the station could deliver a 600-home scheme, which would improve transport and access in the town centre.
The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, said: “As part of making London’s transport system one of the very best in the world, we must ensure it is accessible for all Londoners.
“As part of building a modern and affordable transport system, I’m determined to make sure all Londoners can get around London safely and easily.”
Harrow Council leader, Councillor Sachin Shah, added: “Opening up the station will help open up our town centre too.”
