The New Look Tonbridge Station

What does everyone think about the new railway station frontage? I'm yet to see inside the building but will report my findings when I do. Not sure it'll make the trains arrive any quicker but, hey, you'll have a nicer experience whilst you are waiting! (Right commuters?!) Naturally a picture should appear along with this post but I haven't got around to taking one yet. Just go and have a look for yourselves if you're that bothered....

Looks better from the outside and entrance is bigger. Not much change inside - more ticket machines to the right as you go in. Ticket office in same place. New waiting rooms on platform 1/2 and looks like new screens going up too

Agree with tontweet's comments. From the outside the frontage does look a heck of a lot nicer than the previous ghastly yellow and brown tiled facade. The only question I have is "why did it take the contractors so long to carry out the work?"

Closed for weeks and the result is.........wtf did they do?

Still tiled like a public toilet on the outside

Work took so long as asbestos was found on site - the Courier had an article about if a few weeks back.

The outside looks OK but the inside has had a very perfunctory lick of paint and the floor is still in a disgraceful state. The cash machine seems to have gone for good, which is damned annoying.

And why did it take months and months to complete?
