The new state-of-the-art station, which opened in October, now links directly onto the Harrow Manorway flyover, as well as onto Felixstowe Road and Gayton Road, and the new lifts provide step-free access throughout.
The new Elizabeth line (Crossrail) rail link is now due to open in Autumn 2019. At peak times, a train every five minutes will make it quicker and easier for local people to get to a range of destinations across London and the South East, including Canary Wharf, the West End and Heathrow.
The dramatically improved transport links will also help to make Abbey Wood an even more attractive place to live, work and visit, helping to bring more businesses and investment into the local area.
The London Borough of Bexley and the Royal Borough of Greenwich are also working together to deliver significant improvements to the area around the new station. Improvements have been carried out to the flyover, and further works are due at ground level in Felixstowe Road and Gayton Road. These will include new trees and shrubs, seats and cycle parking, street paving and streetlights; as well as a new boulevard along Harrow Manorway, linking the Peabody housing zone to the station.
