IMAGES: Stratford station gets revamped

The Olympic Delivery Authority is pushing ahead with work at Stratford Regional Station in preparation for the hundreds of thousands of spectators that will use it everyday during the London 2012 Games.

The most visible change to the front of the station will be the new entrance for the station at mezzanine level, will help reduce congestion during the Games. It will allow people leaving the Olympic Park to bypass the subways and use a new bridge to directly access the new Central line and DLR platforms for services towards London. 

Other work at the station includes an extended canopy on platform 6/8 to protect spectators and commuters from the weather and two new lifts.

By 2016, the number of passengers at Stratford Regional Station in the morning peak is expected to more than double and the ODA’s work to treble the capacity of the station and improve accessibility will help meet this future demand.
