Cllr Mark Coxshall, Cabinet Member for Regeneration, Strategic Planning, and External Relationships, 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."

Mike Evans, operations director for VolkerFitzpatrick, 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.”
