Work has begun to spruce up Harrow and Wealdstone Station, which was badly in need of repairs.
The £3.7 million revamp will include replacing and repainting windows and work to refurbish the bridge and lifts.
Work has already started with one half of the bridge currently boarded up and out of use.
The works are expected to continue until December this year. Managers have said the lifts will remain in use throughout.
Greenhill ward councillor Keith Ferry has been pushing for the upgrade for many years.
“I look forward to seeing a station we can be proud of once again – shiny, pristine and sparkling,” he told the council’s Harrow People magazine.
