New signage at Clacton On Sea rail station points visitors in right direction for fun, sea and sand

Thursday, 2 May 2019

Tourists and daytrippers visiting Clacton On Sea by rail will get a helping hand thanks to new finger post signage which will point the way to the town’s attractions.

The new signpost has been funded by the Essex and South Suffolk Community Rail Partnership and will direct visitors to the beach, pier, shops, bus stops and taxis.

In addition, brightly-coloured floor stickers will also guide people in the right direction.

Terri Ryland, Community Rail Partnership Officer, said, “When you arrive at a new place for the first time, it can be hard to get your bearings and we wanted to make sure that visitors to Clacton felt at home right away.

“These handy new signs will help people to easily and quickly find out where all the main attractions are in relation to the station so that they can make the most of their visit.”

Alan Neville, Greater Anglia’s Customer and Community Engagement Manager, said, ““Clacton On Sea rail station is perfectly located for easy access to the town and beach and, with our frequent services and great value fares, is a popular way for people to visit.

“We were pleased to work with the Essex and South Suffolk Community Rail Partnership to install the new signage.”
