Leyton Station Set For £14m Upgrade

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on the Waltham Forest Echo.

These paragraphs outline the joint plan for Leyton and Colindale stations.

Leyton Station will receive step-free access and a new ticket hall and concourse thanks to £14 million from the government’s Levelling Up Fund.

The Greater London Authority was awarded more than £43million yesterday for work to make Leyton Station and Colindale Station in Barnet more accessible.

The Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities hopes that the work will improve “two pockets of socio-economic deprivation in the capital”.

Waltham Forest Council has insisted for some time that an upgrade to the station is “desperately needed” to expand capacity before thousands of new homes are built nearby.

This project doesn’t seem to be listed on the this page in The Times, which is entitled Levelling Up: Full List Of Winners From Eden Project North To Mini Golf.

This news item from Barnet Council is entitled Barnet Council Leader Welcomes £29.5m Levelling Up Funding For Redeveloping At-Capacity Colindale Tube Station and gives a description of the works proposed at Colindale station.
