Greater Anglia has already completed a programme to re-paint the East Suffolk line between Ipswich and Lowestoft as well as at major stations, including Ipswich, Norwich and Colchester.

Greater Anglia’s Customer Services Director, Andrew Goodrum, said “Investment in facilities at stations is important to meet our customers’ expectations of good customer service and to encourage more people to travel by rail”.
