Following the involvement of Redbridge Council, the restoration of the iconic red telephone box outside Wanstead Station has been undertaken by BT.
Wanstead Park Councillor Sheila Bain said: “I’ve been working with BT over the last few months on the refurbishment of the telephone box. It is protected as a Grade 2 listed structure and BT has a responsibility to maintain it as the owners. The door had been removed for safety reasons and there was some delay in being able to get a replacement, which is now installed. All the missing glass has been replaced and there is a working phone. A fresh coat of paint will be applied in the Spring.”
