The long-awaited reconstruction work at Ipswich railway station forecourt is now almost complete with just bus shelters, street lights, and low-level fencing to be installed.
The last road works were completed on the bus and taxi waiting area over the weekend and that is now fully opened. The lights, fencing and bus shelters are due to be installed by the middle of May. The forecourt work has cost £1m and was funded and carried out by Suffolk County Council.
It followed on from Greater Anglia’s £1m rebuilding work at the station building itself last year which saw the new ticket hall and waiting area created with new sales areas for Greggs, Starbucks and newsagent WH Smith.
A full re-opening ceremony for the station is being planned for the early summer after the general election with local business and political leaders in a bid to boost the station’s profile and encourage more passengers.
