Ipswich Railway Station on the Great Eastern Mainline is set to have a £3 million makeover.
The upgrade work which was planned to start this month will include improvements to the staff facilities and public toilets along with the addition of shop spaces which will bring more convenience for commuters.
Opened in 1846 as Ipswich Stoke Hill by the Eastern Union Railway Company, the station was relocated to its current site in 1860. The railway station is served by train operator Greater Anglia and the station has great links to London, Stansted Airport, destinations in Suffolk and the Norfolk coast line.
Simone Bailey, Greater Anglia’s Asset Management Director, said: “We’re pleased to be starting the final phase of work at Ipswich station.
“There will be minimal impact to customers while the work takes place. It is due to be completed next summer.”
