Swindon train station forecourt refurbishment begins
The first phase of a £1.75m facelift for the forecourt of Swindon railway station has begun.
Swindon Borough Council plans to turn the taxi rank and bus stops outside the station into a paved area, lined with benches and trees.
Contractors will begin by creating a temporary taxi rank so work on the station can start properly over the next fortnight.
The work is expected to take six months to complete.
