Improved facilities at Audley End station

Wednesday, 16 October 2013

Passengers using Audley End rail station are benefitting from improved facilities thanks to improvement works carried out by train operator, Greater Anglia.

The existing toilet facilities have been refurbished to create a modern, cleaner and more welcoming environment for customers using the station and are also compliant with the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA), which means that they are fully accessible for passengers with mobility impairments.

Local MP, Sir Alan Haselhurst, will visit the station on Friday 18th October at 11.30am to meet Greater Anglia’s Area Customer Services Manager, Flavio Lopes and view the improvements.

The work follows the installation of an access ramp to the side of the station building last year to improve access for passengers with mobility problems. The new accessible toilet facilities are a further step to make their travelling experience easier.

Flavio Lopes, Greater Anglia’s Area Customer Services Manager, said, “We are delighted that the upgrade to Audley End is now complete. The new facilities will be of great benefit to passengers using the station, creating a more accessible and welcoming environment for customers as they wait for trains.”

MP, Sir Alan Haselhurst, said, “I am very pleased to acknowledge this new development at the station. It adds to the improving range of facilities available whilst significantly enhancing access.”

Lifts were also installed in 2011 thanks to the DfT’s Access for All initiative, making the station fully accessible to passengers with mobility impairments.
