Network Rail is set to unveil the latest design proposals to revitalise the area around the Grade 2 listed Peckham Rye railway station with an investment of £25m at an upcoming event on 18 January.
Network Rail planning and land services director Tom Higginson said: "With improved services to Peckham Rye station now running, we’ve got the perfect opportunity to invest in the station area with Southwark Council.
"We, and our partners, will be listening to the people of Peckham in drawing up a plan to benefit the area and help boost existing and new business."
The proposed renovation will include a new square in front of the Grade 2 listed building in an effort to make the buildings and spaces that surround the station cleaner, safer and more useful for both residents and station visitors.
Improvement works including new lifts and ticket machines are currently being carried out at the station.
A Weston Williamson architect said: "We very much look forward to presenting and discussing the design with the community at the forthcoming consultation events and receiving feedback on the proposals for this significant project at the very heart of Peckham."
