Post lock down train travel is destined to be more comfortable and convenient in the Fens.  

Construction of a112-space car park at Manea station is set to get underway this spring. 

Fenland District Council appointed Danaher & Walsh for the Manea car park works last week. 

The company’s work is familiar in the Fens – they are undertaking major bridge refurbishments at Pondersbridge and Ramsey St Mary’s. 

Due for completion by September 2021, the car park will include cycle parking and a bus turning and drop-off area. 

New platform waiting shelters have already been installed at Manea and Whittlesea stations 

Meanwhile, March station operator Greater Anglia has appointed Total Property Support Services Limited for the developments there.
