Restored Preston footbridge is a step forward for Faversham Station

It’s been closed for six months - making it harder for people living south of the railway to get into town - so I was delighted to re-open the Preston footbridge.

It’s been spruced up and strengthened so it can now stay open during the hop festival and other town events.

We recently got new lifts at the station too, which has made life easier for disabled passengers. The restoration of the footbridge is a step forward in the campaign to return the station and surrounding area to its Victorian glory.
