NETWORK Rail is investing £23million to rebuild parts of Feltham station in south-west London.

The improvements are being delivered in partnership with Hounslow Council and Transport for London (TfL) to reduce dwell times at suburban stations, offer passengers easier journeys, and to create a safer, more accessible station for the community.

The first phase of work will begin in September, with the installation of a second entrance on platform 1, providing step-free access.
