Brockley Station project delayed

We have just received this statement from Lewisham Council concerning the Brockley Station ramp on Coulgate Street:

A Lewisham Council spokesperson said:

“The proposed work to provide disability access from Coulgate Street to Brockley railway station’s ticket office has had to be suspended.

“There was an initial delay in the Council receiving the licence required from Network Rail to carry out the work and the conditions contained in the final version of the licence were not acceptable. They placed too much financial responsibility on the Council.

“We share the disappointment that local people will feel. However, we are hoping that new licence terms can be agreed so that works can begin this spring.”


BC hopes that the barriers occupying Coulgate Street can be removed in the mean time.
