New Fenchurch Street Entrance

NEW ENTRANCE OPENS AT FENCHURCH STREET STATION

Commuters will now experience an improved journey through one of London’s landmark stations after a new station entrance was opened today as part of Fenchurch Street’s £4m upgrade.

The new entrance, on Cooper’s Row, will help passengers move through the station more quickly and ease rush-hour congestion in the most crowded parts of the station. It is a third entrance for the station, adding to the existing front entrance on Fenchurch Place, and the Tower Hill entrance.

This represents a major milestone in the joint station upgrade between Network Rail and National Express train operator c2c, which will also create a second staircase from the station’s mezzanine level to the Cooper’s Row and Tower Hill entrances.
