Work on a £500,000 project to improve Kennett’s station is set to start this month.

The work by Abellio Greater Anglia will include resurfacing platforms, replacing slabs at the platform edge, new waiting shelters on both platforms, the demolition of some redundant buildings and the installation of new cycle parking hoops.

The work, which will done mainly at night is expected to take 10 weeks. Abellio Greater Anglia’s area customer service manager, Neil Grabham, said, “This is a significant upgrade to Kennett Station which will create an improved ambience and pleasant station environment for our customers.

“Abellio Greater Anglia is committed to upgrades at stations across the network to improve the travelling experience and it seemed a good opportunity to carry out this work whilst engineering works are taking place.”
