County and district councillor Anna Bailey hopes to improve safety and access for pedestrians at Ely station.

“I have met with Greater Anglia and a county council officer to see what can be done to improve the pedestrian access and safety at the station,” she said.

“The muddy footpath - well trodden by hundreds of people every day - on the Tesco side of the access road is owned by Tesco and I am in touch with them to try to get it tarmacked,” she said.

The station access road itself is controlled by Greater Anglia, said Cllr Bailey.

“Having met with their customer engagement manager on site in Ely, I am now liaising with the asset management team to try to get a formal crossing point within the site to get people safely from the Tesco side of the road to the station side,” she said.
