 Kew Society
Kew Gardens station was constructed by the London and South Western Railway between 1868-70, but a footbridge to link the bisected community and provide visitors with a safe route over the tracks to the Royal Botanic Gardens was not opened until 1912.
This initiative, which first commenced in 2001 as part of the efforts to mark the Society's centenary, will help to rejuvenate the heart of Kew and improve the quality of life of residents and the thousands of visitors who pass through the station to visit the Royal Botanic Gardens and the National Archives.
The Society is also actively involved in proposals to improve the North Road exit from the Station, including a paved area, enhanced shop fronts and hopefully benches and a planter.
