TRAIN operator First Capital Connect is set to revamp the booking hall at St Neots station to make it comply with the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA).
The company also plans an extension to accommodate four automatic ticket gates.
In a scheme costing more than £300,000, the ticket office will be overhauled, if planners agree, with new ticket windows, one of which will be fully DDA accessible - in readiness for the passenger lifts expected within a couple of years.
The lifts will be paid for by cash from Gallagher estates, which is building the nearby 1,350-home Loves Farm estate.
There will also be new automatic double entrance doors and enhancements to CCTV and customer information screens.
Rico's cafe will be relocated, remaining within the concourse area, but moving next to the existing ticket office, facing out on to the forecourt.

Work is expected to start in April or May and take up to 16 weeks.
