Engineering and construction company VolkerFitzpatrick has been chosen by Thurrock Council in the UK for the delivery of the major redevelopment of Stanford-le-Hope railway station.

VolkerFitzpatrick will finish the essential next stage of detailed design works prior to the commencement of construction this summer.

Cabinet Member for Regeneration, Strategic Planning, and External Relationships Mark Coxshall said: "Stanford-le-Hope needs and deserves a fit-for-purpose station that is accessible and safe and I am pleased to announce that work to progress the crucial redevelopment of Stanford-le-Hope railway station is now moving at pace.

"VolkerFitzpatrick's appointment means we can now get the job done for the residents of Stanford-le-Hope, Corringham, Fobbing and Horndon on the Hill, as we continue to build the right infrastructure to support our residents and local businesses."

The new Stanford-le-Hope railway station will have step-free access from the street, wider platforms with waiting areas, increased cycle storage, as well as facilities for a coffee vendor.

It would feature a footbridge with lifts to help improve accessibility.

VolkerFitzpatrick operations director Mike Evans said: "We are very pleased to be appointed to deliver the major redevelopment of Stanford-le-Hope railway station.

"We will work closely with the council and the local community to deliver this project.

"It will provide improved travel links that will create access to existing and new local job opportunities."
