Passengers using Ely rail station are to benefit from improved facilities, thanks to improvement works being carried out by Abellio Greater Anglia.

Work has started to refurbish the waiting room on platform one with new energy-efficient heating, flooring, seating and redecoration.

The waiting area will also offer passengers the opportunity to charge laptops and mobile phones and work while they wait with plug sockets, tables and comfortable seating.

The existing male and female toilet facilities are also being upgraded to create a more modern, welcoming and hygienic environment for customers using the station and are expected to be completed over the next few weeks.

Abellio Greater Anglia has apologised that the toilet facilities will be out of use while this work is carried out.

Paul Stannard, area customer services manager, said: “The new facilities will benefit passengers using the station, creating a more welcoming and pleasant environment for customers as they wait for trains.

“We hope customers will bear with us while these improvement works are carried out and we are working to minimise any inconvenience.”
