Work complete to improve bridge and lighting at Trimley rail station near Ipswich and Felixstowe





Improvements have been made at a Suffolk rail station including a renovated footbridge and new lighting to the station platform and car-park.

Greater Anglia invested over £1.2 million in a complete refurbishment of Trimley's rail station bridge near Ipswich and Felixstowe, involving repairing and strengthening steel structures as well as installing new stair treads and decking.

New handrails with lighting were also installed, along with a new non-slip floor surface to improve passenger safety when going up or down the steps.

The height of the bridge parapet was raised as an additional safety measure and re-wiring of the station was also carried out, with new lighting columns installed on the station approach.

Greater Anglia’s Asset Management Director, Simone Bailey, said: “The work at Trimley station means that the footbridge is now looking much smarter, has improved customer safety and is helping to enhance the station environment for our customers.

“I would like to thank customers for their patience while this work was carried out.
