Greater Anglia installs LED lighting at more than 80 stations

Friday, 3 August 2018

Greater Anglia is installing LED lighting at stations across the network in a bid to tackle its carbon footprint and reduce the impact on the environment.

Since last December, lighting has been replaced at more than 80 stations across its network, as part of a £1.7m investment.

The new lighting, which has been installed on platforms, on concourses and in car parks, will make stations look and feel brighter and more pleasant.

Over the coming months, LED lighting will be installed at a further 24 stations.

Simone Bailey, Greater Anglia Asset Management Director, said: “We do all we can do reduce our impact on the environment and this is the latest scheme to tackle our carbon footprint.

“We aim to install LED lighting at all of the stations we manage. This will help save energy, create a more pleasant atmosphere for our customers and improve safety and security.”

Greater Anglia has been working to reduce its impact on the environment, having already invested £65,000 in installing LED lighting at Clacton depot, which will save energy. Other green initiatives include free water refill points at Ipswich, Chelmsford and Cambridge, installing electric car charging points, increasing recycling and creating more cycle parking spaces.
