COMMUTERS waiting for trains at Chesham station will soon be able to use wifi after plans to set up a wireless system were approved.

Because the station - which was opened in the 1880s - has Listed status, London Underground had to apply for permission to install a wireless access network.

The application has this week been approved by Chiltern District Council.

London Underground recently unveiled plans to install wifi internet connections at 130 Tube stations and a further 56 on the Overground network.
