Work will soon start to upgrade the station building and restore the canopy at Whittlesford Parkway railway station in Cambridgeshire.

Work on the £500,000 project, which will see the canopy stripped back to its timbers and refurbished, and the station building improved, is due to start on March 6 and will be completed by the summer.

A temporary ticket office will be in use while the work takes place and train services will run as normal.

Simone Bailey, Greater Anglia Asset Management Director, said: “We are very proud of our stations, and we are always looking to improve them where possible. This work will help enhance the appearance of Whittlesford Parkway and make it a more pleasant and welcoming space.

“We would like to thank customers for their patience while this work is carried out.”

Some car parking spaces in the car park near platform 2 will be out of use while the work takes place. However, plenty of parking is available near platform 1. Cycle parking is unaffected.

Last year, Greater Anglia invested over £1 million in station improvements across its network, including on the installation of nine new waiting shelters and the refurbishment of eight stations’ toilet facilities, along with the provision of 450 platform benches at 76 stations across Norfolk, Suffolk, Essex, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire.
