This scheme delivers public realm and accessibility improvements on an important gateway into a regional business centre.  The scheme improves the links between Chatham railway station and Chatham town centre and waterfront area, resulting in improved access from the station to large areas of employment, retail and education in the town centre and beyond, particularly for people with mobility difficulties.

The project will include:

  • gateway improvements at Chatham station
  • improved walking and cycling facilities
  • improvements to hard and soft landscaping along the corridor from the train station to the town including the creation of a civic square
  • traffic management measures near Chatham station
  • signage and way-marking improvements and public art installations.
