Work is about to start to upgrade rail station car parks across East Anglia to keep them looking smart and welcoming to station users.

Greater Anglia will carry out works to repair potholes, apply new markings, and repair tarmac surfaces at 19 station car parks across its network.

The station car parks being upgraded are Althorne, Beccles, Billericay, Clacton-on- Sea, Colchester, Diss, Harlow Town, Herford East, Hockley, Marks Tey, North Fambridge, Rayleigh, Rochford, Sawbridgeworth, Shenfield, Shippea Hill, Southminster, Weeley and Wickford.

Work will begin at the majority of these stations in November,

Greater Anglia’s Asset Management Director, Simone Bailey, said,

"It is really important that our car parks are maintained to a high standard so that we meet the expectations of our customers by providing them with excellent facilities.

“I am pleased that these upgrades are taking place and I hope that our hard work will make a real difference for users.

“During the upgrades, we will do everything we can to minimise inconvenience to car park and station users and we will endeavour to keep noise and disturbance to our neighbours to a minimum.”
