Improvement work completed at Bury St Edmunds station

Thursday, 28 April 2016

Passengers using Bury St Edmunds rail station are benefiting from improved facilities, with better access for disabled people, thanks to improvement works carried out by Abellio Greater Anglia.

The existing toilet facilities have been completely refurbished to create a more modern, welcoming and hygienic environment for customers using the station.

A brand new ladies toilet has been created using part of the floor area of the existing waiting room. The existing wheelchair ramp was removed and the floor brought up to platform level with automatic doors installed to make the toilet easier to access for those with mobility problems.


A new disabled toilet and a gents toilet has also been installed within the existing toilet space, again with access from the platform through automatic doors.

The work ensures these facilities are compliant with the requirements of the Disability Discrimination Act, making them more accessible to those with restricted mobility.

New seating has also been installed in the waiting room, which has been repainted and received new flooring. Improvements will have also been made to the cycle storage facilities.

James Steward, Area Customer Services Manager, said, “The new facilities provide a more welcoming and pleasant waiting environment for passengers using the station. Abellio Greater Anglia is committed to upgrading stations across the network to make customers’ journeys better.”
