Customers are being advised of the closure of the footpath leading to March railway station as improvement work is to be carried out.
The car park will be both resurfaced and lined from Thursday the 24th to Tuesday the 29th of March.
Large construction vehicles will be working on-site which will mean that people will not be able to use the public footpath which leads to the station.
The only available access to the station during this time will be via the road on Station Approach.
Greater Anglia’s Asset Management Director, Simone Bailey, said:
“I would like to thank customers for their patience while we carry out this upgrade which will transform the station and offer a much better travelling experience.”
Greater Anglia’s work remodelling the whole station has been underway since 2021 with the project now moving into its final stages creating an open-plan ticket hall and waiting area, accessible modern toilet facilities, retail outlets alongside an upgraded and extended car park for the station.
The work comes as part of a multi-million-pound regeneration of Fenland’s railway stations which is moving forward seeing major improvement works on the railway line between Ely and Peterborough.
Delivered via Fenland District Council’s Railway Station Masterplans project, the programme has also seen a £9.5million package of funding from the Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Combined Authority, alongside support from Greater Anglia.
The project aims to bring improvements to passenger facilities for three Fenland stations of Manea, March and Whittlesea on the Ely to Peterborough Hereward Line.
The partnership expects that the upgrades will improve connectivity between the Fenland towns and other regional centres of education and employment and will make an attractive alternative to car travel, bringing far more sustainable journeys.
