South Western Railway makes navigating Wimbledon, Richmond and Woking stations easier

South Western Railway (SWR) has upgraded three of its flagship stations thanks to the installation of brand new wayfinding signage.

People using Wimbledon, Richmond and Woking stations will be able to navigate their way to and from the train more easily, with the clearer, larger signs leading the way.

The upgrade has been designed to improve accessibility, with large yellow signage highlighting accessible routes – such as via lifts. Green signs point the way towards cycle storage facilities.


At the entrances for Wimbledon station, the symbol for South London’s tram network has been added to the national rail and Underground logos, raising awareness of the different transport options available from the station. 

Christian Neill, SWR’s Customer Experience Director, said: “Here at SWR, we’re always looking for ways to make our network easier and more convenient for all of our customers to use.

“That’s why we’re delighted to have completed this upgrade at three of our flagship stations. These bigger and brighter signs will help customers – especially those who require accessible routes – to get to and from their train more easily”.
