Welwyn Garden City station footbridge to be improved


Network Rail is planning to refurbish the footbridge at Welwyn Garden City station, which links the railway station with east Welwyn Garden City.

Work is due to start on Sunday, 22 December. The footbridge will be completely refurbished – a lift and new stairs will be installed, and the bridge will also be cleaned, repainted, resurfaced and have new lights fitted.

Welwyn Garden City station today.

Train services will not be disrupted whilst this work is carried out, though there will be no access to the station via Hydeway.

The work is expected to be completed by late Spring 2020, improving both passengers’ experience and the station’s connection to the town.
