Graffiti removed from station wall

Release Date: 14 November 2019

Richmond Council, in partnership with the Whitton Business Association, has returned the wall outside Whitton station to its former glory.

Members of the public and local businesses have expressed concern over the graffiti style coating that has been covering the wall outside of the train station. High Street traders particularly feel that the bridge is an ‘architectural landmark’ and an ‘important anchor at one end of the High Street’.

The Council has now removed the eyesore.

Nick O’Donnell, Assistant Director for Traffic and Engineering, for Richmond Council said:

“We aim to keep the borough as clean and safe as possible. As part of this, we are committed to reducing and removing graffiti.

“Graffiti is a crime; if you see it taking place, please report it to the police.”

Graeme Wood from Whitton Business Association, said:

"We'd like to express our gratitude to the Richmond Highways Department who have worked with Love Whitton to deliver this much needed improvement. It's a great example of successful partnership working and is one of many projects Love Whitton delivers, that seek to improve the High Street for our members and their customers."
