More than £50,000 of refurbishments and upgrades at Sudbury train station have at last been implemented, as part of a larger set of investments aimed at improving the railway line for commuters.

A new and improved passenger waiting platform and resurfaced platforms are among the renovations financed by regional train operator Greater Anglia.

The station has also received new energy-efficient white LED lights to replace its previous orange-coloured lighting, which the service provider says are intended to be brighter, improve safety and security, and bring down energy consumption and costs.

Following the completion of the work, Simone Bailey, Greater Anglia’s director of asset management, said: “I’d like to thank customers for their patience while this work was carried out.

“The station is now much improved, brighter and safer as a result of this upgrade.

“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.”

Separately, Greater Anglia also confirmed that the Sudbury line – the northern end of the Gainsborough Line, which is a branch of the Great Eastern Main Line – will also benefit from new ‘bi-mode’ trains, which can take advantage of running on electricity wherever there are overhead lines.

The trains, which are being introduced as part of a £1.4 billion investment across Greater Anglia’s fleet, will also have quieter and more efficient engines.
