Passengers at Trimley rail station are now benefitting from more than £1.2 million in improvements by Greater Anglia including renovations to the footbridge and new lighting along the station platform and car park.
Greater Anglia undertook a complete refurbishment of the historic footbridge, which included repairing and strengthening steel structures and installing new stair treads and decking.
The bridge was painted in a heritage green colour, and new, brightly painted handrails with lighting were installed. A new non-slip floor surface was included to improve passenger safety when going up or down the steps.
As an additional safety measure, the height of the bridge parapet was raised in the same heritage style as the existing ironwork.
Re-wiring of the station was also carried out, with new lighting columns installed on the station approach.
Greater Anglia’s Asset Management Director, Simone Bailey, said, “The work at Trimley station means that the footbridge is now looking much smarter, has improved customer safety and is helping to enhance the station environment for our customers.
“I would like to thank customers for their patience while this work was carried out.
“Investing in upgrades to stations across the network is extremely important to Greater Anglia, demonstrating our commitment to providing excellent facilities and service to our customers.”
