Work is due to start to restore the platform canopy at Burnham-on-Crouch rail station, Essex.
Greater Anglia is investing £500K in the scheme to repair the canopy which has deteriorated and become rotten through water damage.
The work is due to commence in early February.
There will be no inconvenience to passengers during the works, with access arrangements to and from the platform remaining unchanged, and the waiting room remaining open.
The work will involve removing all old roof coverings and timber edge trims from the canopy, including adjoining lead flashings, fascias, ceiling soffit boards and substructure ceiling supports, then repairing and replacing them as required.
The canopy’s gutter will also be replaced, and new roof coverings, facias and mouldings installed to return the canopy to its former glory.
The work is due to be completed in the spring.
Greater Anglia’s Asset Management Director, Simone Bailey, said:
“We are pleased to be restoring the canopy at Burnham-on-Crouch to improve the facilities for station users and the appearance of the station for the local community.
“Investing in upgrades to stations across the network is extremely important to Greater Anglia, demonstrating our commitment to providing excellent facilities and service standards for our customers.”
