Train operator Greater Anglia has started a programme of improvement works at rail stations on the East Suffolk Line between Lowestoft and Ipswich.
The company says the work will bring stations up to standard in advance of the new hourly timetable which will operate on the line from December 10.
Stations on the line are being given a new coat of paint and new signage will be installed.
At selected stations on the route more work will be undertaken or has been carried out.
At Halesworth the canopy has been refurbished and it has also received a new coat of paint.
At Darsham there will be resurfacing of platforms and at Wickham Market there will be the installation of new car park lighting.
Greater Anglia says the refurbishment works will create a much more pleasant and welcoming environment for passengers.
Greater Anglia’s customer services director, Andrew Goodrum said, “We are working hard to improve customer service across the Greater Anglia network and ensuring our passengers experience a clean and pleasant station is extremely important to us.
“Improving and enhancing stations through these improvement works is one way that we are demonstrating our determination to make a real difference for our customers in delivering our franchise commitments.”
