Improvements to Ely railway station, which include a new ticket office and more car parking spaces, are due to take place.
Greater Anglia aim to complete work in and outside the station to help “strengthen the quality of the offer to the passenger”, according to Network Rail.
The works include refurbishment of the station building, a new booking hall, ticket office and a new waiting room.
“This project represents an opportunity to arrange the ticket hall and passenger facilities into a standard expected of a key regional interchange,” said Network Rail.
“It also aims to reduce ticketless travel revenue losses for all operators through the installation of automatic ticket gates.”
An “improved station car park arrangement” will also be worked on, including accessible bays and the installation of a crossing.
Greater Anglia bosses took questions from commuters about the Ely station works, which were given prior approval last October, on February 17.

It is thought commuters will face minimal disruption while the works take place.
The works, which were due to begin in November last year, are planned to begin this spring.
