Rail passengers using Tottenham Hale railway station can now help themselves to free water after Greater Anglia installed a water fountain.
A water fountain has been installed on platform 4, as part of an initiative which aims to reduce plastic waste.
Tottenham Hale is the twelfth Greater Anglia station to benefit from a water fountain with the others being located at Chelmsford, Ipswich, Cambridge, Colchester, Ely, Bishop’s Stortford, Witham, Shenfield, Billericay, Wickford and Norwich.
So far, Greater Anglia customers have refilled more than 100,000 water bottles using the refill points across the network.
What did the officials say?
Simone Bailey, Greater Anglia’s Asset Management Director, said:
“We are very pleased to open a new water fountain our network. Millions of people use these stations every year and we hope that by providing free water, it will help makes passengers’ journeys a little easier.
“We care about the environment, so we are delivering a number of projects to improve our energy-efficiency and operate in a more sustainable manner – from installing LED lighting, to recycling food, to providing free electric car charging points.
“We already recycle as much of our waste as possible. We have increased our recycling by 71% over the past five years, but we are looking to increase that figure even further, and reduce the amount of waste we send to landfill.”
