A new state-of-the-art station, which will open at the end of 2017, will link directly onto the Harrow Manorway flyover and six new lifts will provide step-free access to every platform.
The new rail link will be known as the Elizabeth line when it opens in December 2018. 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. These will include new trees and shrubs, new seats and cycle parking, new street paving and new streetlights, as well as a new boulevard linking the Peabody housing zone to the station.
Network Rail is taking a range of measures to make sure that any disruption for local people is kept to a minimum while the new station is being built.
