It was a very happy day for me. After years of complaints from residents I set up a Deptford Station roundtable to bring all the rail operators, developer and council together.
After a decade of campaigning it's happening at last. Congratulations and thanks to everyone involved.
The project has been funded by £3.8 million from Lewisham Council and a further £2 million from the national stations development programme.
Developer VolkerFitzpatrick says the station will remain open to passengers throughout construction, which is expected to be completed by next spring.
