Trimley footbridge, via Greater Anglia

Trimley station safety upgrade works complete

Trimley rail station has received major safety improvements from a £1.2m investment package of works that has been completed by Greater Anglia, providing a successfully renovated footbridge and new lighting to illuminate the station and car park.

The bridge refurbishment saw the delivery of requisite repair works, including the strengthening of steel structures and the installation of new stair treads and decking to improve safety standards for passengers.

Safety improvements can also be seen through freshly painted handrails that incorporate lighting elements, accompanied with a brand new, non-slip flooring surface that will improve passenger stability as they travel up and down the steps.

Concurrent works also saw the bridge parapet’s heigh raised, along with a complete re-wiring of the station, seeing the inclusion of 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.

“Investing in upgrades to stations across the network is extremely important to Greater Anglia, demonstrating our commitment to providing excellent facilities and service to our customers.”
