Farringdon Station opens new entrance
FARRINGDON station has a new entrance which is only open during peak times.
The new gate in Turnmill Street has replaced what has been a temporary entrance until recently.
David Statham, First Capital Connect projects director, said: “This is good news for our passengers”.
The work has been done as part of the station’s redevelopment which will see a new concourse, new ticket hall, a new roof and the restoration of the station building.
The redevelopment is scheduled for completion in 2012 before the Olympics.
