Electrial upgrade at Buckenham and Haddiscoe complete

Tuesday, 22 December 2015

Abellio Greater Anglia has completed an electrical upgrade at Buckenham and Haddiscoe rail stations to make them more energy-efficient.


The train operator’s ‘Rewire, Relight’ project has seen every lighting unit on the platforms replaced with more energy-efficient ones and a complete rewiring at both stations.


New variable controls and automatic settings for the lighting will help to reduce electricity consumption and improve energy-efficiency, reducing the carbon footprint of both stations on the Norwich – Lowestoft ‘Wherry Lines’ route.


Abellio Greater Anglia’s Programme Delivery Manager, Simon Wilson, said, “The Rewire, Relight project is helping to create more energy-efficient stations and, at the same time, improve the station ambience and environment for passengers.”
