WORK has started on a £100,000 the revamp of Cuffley railway station forecourt.
Funding from Hertfordshire County Council means passengers at the First Capital Connect-run station will benefit from improved transport links and new, dedicated drop-off parking spaces.
FCC said there will also be “a smoother ride for bus passengers thanks to an improved bus turning area”.
Contractors started on Monday (June 17) and have begun alteration works one of the existing traffic islands to make it easier for buses to turn when leaving the car park.
Once that is completed, both islands will be hoarded off for work to create three new parking spaces and four new drop-off spaces.
