Lying just east of Gillingham in the southeast of England, Sittingbourne station boasts a rich industrial history. The arrival of the railway in 1858 transformed the market town into a thriving industrial epicentre, helping to fuel the expansion of London through production of bricks and paper. To this day the station has close links to the capital, with many of the town’s residents commuting each day via the regular London Victoria and High Speed 1 links to St Pancras International. A recent £1.8m refurbishment as part of the government’s Access for All campaign has seen the station revitalised with two new platform lifts providing step-free access to rail services. Work has also been undertaken to relocate and increase the amount of cycle parking spaces, improve the station’s waiting facilities, and provide improved information screens for passengers across all three platforms.
