How would you spend £80,000 at your station?

Last Modified June 27, 2019
Train passengers are being asked how they think £80,000 should be spent on Elstree and Borehamwood railway station.

Govia Thameslink Railway (GTR) who are responsible for services from Bedford to Brighton, have teamed up with Elstree Screen Heritage to ask members of the public how they think a potential grant of £80,000 should be spent locally. The grant comes from a £15 million passenger benefit fund, set up by GTR following last summer’s disruption when new timetables were introduced and many services were delayed or cancelled.

Projects to improve the station and its vicinity could involve installing new benches or directional signs, refurbishments to staircases or toilets, installing cycle parking, building a new waiting room or shelter, or more ticket vending machines or customer information screens.

To give your views go here. All ideas and comments must be submitted by Monday 15 July.

To find out more go to GTR's website or contact contact@elstreescreenheritage.org

Elstree Screen Heritage is a member of the First Impressions group, which works with GTR, Herfordshire County Council, Hertsmere Borough Council and Elstree and Borehamwood Town Council to improve public spaces in Elstree and Borehamwood and celebrate the local area’s film and TV heritage.
