Rail passengers using Hatfield Peverel rail station are benefiting from a better waiting room thanks to an improvement scheme completed by Abellio Greater Anglia.

The new waiting room features DDA compliant push button automatic doors, a train departure summary screen and energy-efficient heating, as well as new flooring and seating and redecoration in Abellio Greater Anglia colours. It also offers passengers the opportunity to charge laptops and mobile phones and work while they wait.
