New Entrance at Shepherd’s Bush

Shepherd’s Bush Overground station got a new entrance this week – opening quietly at the weekend on Sunday afternoon, up at the northern end of the station. ┬áThe platforms have been extended to to allow for longer Southern trains to stop – the Overground too is benefiting from having 5 car trains instead of 4 now.

It was very quiet when we popped down with just one person entering in the 15 minutes that we watched – and no one coming out, all the passengers on the train that arrived seemingly oblivious to the new way out of the station.

There are 8 barrier gates – more than the main ticket office has, and once development of Westfield happens at this end, or people just realise that that this entrance is here, we daresay it will be used more and hopefully ease some the the overcrowding you always get when many people get off the train at once, and you have to wait patiently to get through the ticker barriers.

We’ve updated the 3D map for the App already of course – and counted all the steps! – and it’ll be in the next update of the App.
