Greater Anglia has announced that the £3.1m project to extend Manningtree’s car park is now complete.
220 additional spaces were fully opened on Monday after work was completed by Greater Anglia to expand the old one-storey car park and develop wasteland to bring the total number of car park spaces to more than 800.
Additionally, 20 Blue Badge spaces have been created and new LED lighting has also been installed throughout.
The work is part of a £25 million investment in improving car parks.
What did the officials say?
Simone Bailey, Greater Anglia’s Asset Management Director, said:
“I’m delighted that the work is now complete, creating so much more space at this busy station.
“As more people make the switch from car to rail, attracted by its sustainability in terms of being a better choice environmentally, but also thanks to the introduction of our longer, more comfortable fleet of brand new trains, it’s important that we can meet this growing demand.”
“I’d like to thank our customers and the community for their patience while this work was carried out.”
