The Fenland stations regeneration project, a £9.5 million package of funding from the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority (CAPCA) is close to completion.

The project involves an upgrade to March station including  the redesign of platform one with a new ticket office, waiting area, toilets and shop. 

A car park extension is also ‘on track’. 

Similarly, the improvements at Manea station to create a new 100-space car park are also in their final stages. 

Steve Barclay MP visited both sites a few months ago. 

He said: “It’s good to hear that the project is close to completion in March and Manea. 

“These upgrades will make a big difference for visitors and commuters.”
