The scheme will provide a new station with modern facilities as well as an opportunity to build new homes, shops and restaurants around a new revitalised station plaza. More than 6,000 people pass through Twickenham station every day, a figure that swells to over 30,000 on international match days.
The new station will be built on a podium over the main rail lines. The relocated ticket office will provide direct access to the platforms via steps and lifts.
The number of secure bicycle spaces will be increased fourfold to 250 spaces.
New homes will be provided in three blocks built above the station. In total 115 apartments will be created providing a mix of one, two and three bedroom homes.
The proposed redevelopment of Twickenham station has been delayed pending the outcome of a judicial review. Planning permission was granted in December 2011 and work was scheduled to start in September 2012 but the legal challenge has meant the development cannot progress until the judicial review has concluded
