  • Signage upgrade at three key South Western Railway (SWR) stations completed.
  • Bigger, better and more colourful signs set to help customers get to and from their train with ease.
  • Accessible routes now more effectively signposted.

South Western Railway (SWR) has upgraded three of its flagship stations through the installation of brand new wayfinding signage.

Customers using Wimbledon, Richmond and Woking stations will be able to navigate their way to and from the train more easily, with the clearer, larger signs leading the way.

The upgrade has been designed to improve accessibility, with large yellow signage highlighting accessible routes – such as via lifts. Green signs point the way towards cycle storage facilities.

At the entrances for Wimbledon station, the symbol for South London’s tram network has been added to the national rail and Underground logos, raising awareness of the different transport options available from the station. 

Christian Neill, SWR’s Customer Experience Director, said:

“Here at SWR, we’re always looking for ways to make our network easier and more convenient for all of our customers to use.

“That’s why we’re delighted to have completed this upgrade at three of our flagship stations. These bigger and brighter signs will help customers - especially those who require accessible routes - to get to and from their train more easily”.
