Network Rail has announced that repair work is due to begin on the Grade II listed Bookham Station in Great Bookham, Surrey.
Following an examination of the site, wet rot and a fungus attack were found on timbers forming the main station building’s roof.
To replace the timbers and treat the whole building, it will need to be closed, with a temporary ticket office opening in the car park to reduce disruption. Repairs and repainting of the footbridge will also take place at nights.
Planned to take six months, both platforms will be open to passengers while the work takes place.

Network Rail Wessex Route Director Mark Killick said: “We are delighted to be able to refresh the historic station at Bookham for the benefit of passengers and the local community. While the work is taking place on this Grade II listed station, we will try to keep noise to a minimum and apologise for any disruption.”

South Western Railway Customer Experience Director Alan Penlington said: “Our customers will see big improvements at Bookham station, and it will be great to see the footbridge restored to its former glory. We recognise these works will be disruptive, but the station will remain open and operational throughout. I’d like to thank our passengers for their patience whilst these vital works are carried out.”
