The long awaited enhancements at Beccles railway station are nearing fruition, following consultation with the East Suffolk Line Community Rail Partnership over the planned changes.
The plans include contruction of a new shelter and seating on the platform. A new entrance will be created for rail users arriving by car, taxi or cycle. The station car park will accommodate 15 cars and will be situated near the north end of the platform. A further major benefit will be security improvements created by the sheltered housing development overlooking the station, and CCTV coverage of the platform and car park.
Legal agreements are still to be finalised between Network Rail, ‘one’ Railway and the developer, but it is hoped the works can be agreed and completed by Spring 2008.
