New London Overground entrance at Shepherd’s Bush
27 April 2015

London Overground customers using Shepherd's Bush station now have a new second entrance and a new footbridge, which will make their journeys easier and more convenient.

The ú1.35m station upgrade includes two new ticket machines, improved customer information screens and a new pedestrian footbridge bridge - enabling customers to cross from one platform to the other without using the main station entrance.

The Director of London Overground, Mike Stubbs, said: `This will be a great improvement for passengers by helping to reduce their journey times and relieving congestion at the main station entrance and exit by providing alternative access to and from this popular and busy station. During peak times the new exit, combined with the new pedestrian footbridge, will allow a quicker and more convenient route to Westfield shopping centre.'

Shepherd's Bush station has also recently benefited from new longer platforms, which were installed and funded by Network Rail, as part of a ú25 million project to accommodate Southern trains, which are up to eight carriages long. A culmination of nine months work by Network Rail has seen platforms lengthened at stations along the West London line - Clapham Junction, Imperial Wharf, West Brompton and Shepherd's Bush

The Everyman Cinema has it's first screening on 15th May featuring the new Mad Max. Although, at ú19.20 a pop I'll stick to using my Unlimited card at Cineworld WIQ - until there's something I absolutely have to see in glorious 4K.

Taken this afternoon...

Getting things ready for the end of May. As I said before, even the carriages have changed their exterior colour change closer to TFL theme.

Crossrail will use catenary or third rail?
