Improvement work underway at Ely rail station subway

Friday, 31 October 2014

Abellio Greater Anglia is upgrading the subway at Ely station to create a more welcoming environment for rail passengers.

Work is underway to clad the subway in special aluminium powder-coated panels to improve its appearance and make it easier to clean and maintain.

The £150K scheme, funded through the National Stations Improvement Programme, will see a new low maintenance cladding applied to the subway, with integral lighting which will brighten the subway as well as creating a smarter, cleaner appearance.

The subway will remain open throughout the works to minimise disruption to customers, although at a reduced width while each side of the wall is clad.

Abellio Greater Anglia’s Head of Customer Services, Andrew Goodrum, said, “This is a significant upgrade to Ely station which will create an improved ambience and pleasant station environment for our customers. Abellio Greater Anglia is committed to upgrades at stations across the network to improve the travelling experience.”
