The metalwork of Stonebridge Park station is corroding under peeling paintwork. The station platforms at Harlesden station have rainwater leaking through holes in the roof, and the hanging metal signage at the northern ends is disfigured by lime deposits from such leaks.

When are you going to maintain all the London Overground stations in my constituency as well as you manage to do in wealthy areas?

The stations north of Queens Park to Harrow & Wealdstone and Watford Junction are owned by Network Rail. TfL runs the services and operates the stations.

At Harlesden station, Network Rail repaired the roof late last year, but as the leak has unfortunately recurred I understand it will be undertaking further repairs. 

At Stonebridge Park station, Network Rail has surveyed the paint and metalwork and determined that it does not present any safety concerns. However, TfL is assessing if remedial painting works can be prioritised.
