Answer for West Brompton London Overground platforms (2)

Answered By: 
The Mayor

The planning permission for the Capco site at Seagrave Road car park in the London Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham was granted in 2012 and included two significant Section 106 contributions towards improvements at West Brompton station. These were:

       £1.1m towards station capacity enhancements, including additional gates and an enhanced ticket hall

       £1.2m towards the cost of providing step-free access from the street to the southbound Wimbledon branch of the District line.

A further £3.8m has been secured as part of the Earls Court Section 106 agreement, which is required to supplement the contributions secured for the Seagrave Road car park.

Once Transport for London receives the Earls Court Section 106 contribution the full works can be delivered as a single package, which is both the most cost effective approach and has the minimal impact on Londoners' lives.
