Work is to improve that short pathway which connects Springbank Road and Maythorne Cottages/ Nightingale Grove.
Lewisham Contractors will be laying a new path over the next week.
Plastic barriers will be going up to block access to the station and tunnel while work is going on.
While people on foot maybe able to skip through the barriers and the uneven ground, parents with buggies, wheelchair users and people with limited sight may have to take the long route around Nightingale Road.
Note: The Hither Green Community Association will be working with Network Rail to heavily prune back some of the large sycamore trees which now over hang the pathway.
