Borehamwood's fourth Costa Coffee has opened and commuters are loving it.

Costa opened a branch at Elstree & Borehamwood station last week - the final piece of a £1.5 million investment at the station.

The coffee shop is already proving popular with passengers according to store manager Tom Jenkins.

The shop can be accessed from both the platform and outside the station, with seating available on both sides too.

Mr Jenkins said: "A lot of people have been saying it's absolutely stunning. We had people knocking on the doors asking when it was open. They have been so keen for us top open.

"This Costa Coffee is totally bespoke with its two separate counters. It's somewhere warm for our customers to come in."

Nearly all of the team at the new coffee shop are from Elstree & Borehamwood.

The station improvement project, overseen by senior project manager Paul Best, completed on schedule by its contractor HA Marks earlier this year, has more than doubled the size of Elstree & Borehamwood station concourse and added extra ticket gates to relieve crowding.

There is also better, accessible toilets, a larger Nisa mini supermarket as well as the new coffee shop.

Thameslink station manager Marc Asamoah added: "This is great news for our customers and finishes off the transformation of Elstree & Borehamwood station."
