Upgrade at Snodland station almost complete

Work on refurbishing the footbridge at Snodland railway station is almost complete.

It is part of a £500k improvement package that is also seeing tactile paving installed along both platforms to help visually impaired passengers and a mural.

Snodland is on the Medway Valley Line between Halling and New Hythe.

The station consists of two platforms, linked by a lattice girder footbridge which also acts as a public footpath, by-passing the adjacent level crossing.

Fiona Taylor, Kent route director for Network Rail, said: “It’s great to be able to provide passengers and our neighbours at Snodland with a brighter bridge and better platforms, and our new mural also really lifts the station."

The mural has been created by street artist Lionel Stanhope and depicts white trees, reflecting a link to the Five Acre Wood special school which has a satellite provision at Holmesdale School in Snodland.

The school children have contributed by displaying their artwork in the ticket office.
