Marvin Rotrand confirmed that works are soon to start at the Snowdon metro station, where the plans to upgrade the station are to include three new elevators and two public toilets over two years.
three public elevators will be installed for the orange line, and the service elevator will be upgraded.
The Snowdon metro station will be the first in the network to have public toilets.
Rotrand says that final plans haven’t been drawn up yet, but should be finished over the summer, since work is scheduled to start in October or November.
A major electrical upgrade, new emergency equipment and transformers are all part of the plan.
A new ticket booth and fare machines will be changed as well.
The station will remain open.
A special area will be blocked off to secure pedestrian passageways and reduce dust and noise. “There will be extra kiss-and-rides on Queen Mary Road. A taxi stand will be maintained and I understand that traffic volume on Queen Mary will not be affected,” said Rotrand.
However, Westbury will be closed for different periods of time.
“Plans have yet to come,” said Rotrand, and there is no final word on costs.
