Work to add more than 70 new parking spaces at Littleport railway station has begun.

The work will be managed by East Cambridgeshire District Council’s trading company, with Ingleton Wood as the agent and Brooks and Wood Ltd appointed as the main contractor.

Councillor Bill Hunt, chairman of the council’s asset development committee said: “These spaces are much needed and are a significant boost for people who want to use Littleport station to get to work.

“Alongside the extra spaces which are being built at Ely train station, and coupled with the opening of the new Cambridge North railway station, it means that travelling to work by train for people in our district has become much more viable.

“We have worked closely with the contractor to ensure that disruption is minimised for users while the work is being undertaken and the current car park will remain open throughout the works.”

David Ambrose-Smith, chairman of the community services committee and district councillor for Littleport added: “More car parking and cycle spaces being available will have a big impact on Littleport. The spaces will boost the local economy and make Littleport and the surrounding area a more attractive place to live.”

The Littleport station car parking charges will remain the same and the spaces are scheduled to be completed before Christmas.
