Abellio Greater Anglia has introduced an enhanced cleaning programme at rail stations across the network including Ely to maintain the high standards expected by customers.

The train operator is investing over £300,000 in improving the station environment up to standard at 20 stations over the next year, with more to be added to the programme at a later date.

The extra focus on cleanliness will see a team of specialist cleaners descend on the stations, in addition to the usual cleaning routines, thoroughly cleaning away grime from all areas of the stations including glazing and signage.

The first stations to benefit over the next 12 months are: Billericay, Bishop’s Stortford, Broxbourne, Cambridge, Chelmsford, Cheshunt, Colchester, Diss, Ely, Enfield Lock, Harlow Town, Hatfield Peverel, Ingatestone, Ipswich, Kelvedon, Marks Tey, Norwich, Stansted Airport, Shenfield, Stowmarket, Tottenham Hale, Ware and Wickford.

Andrew Goodrum, Abellio Greater Anglia’s Customer Services Director, said, “With thousands of people passing through our stations every day, it is really important that our cleaning regime is efficient and effective. This new programme has been designed so that we achieve the highest standards of cleanliness and improve our customers’ experience at some of the busiest stations across our network.”
