£700k bridge refurbishment gives a lift to Kelvedon station

New handrails, lighting and a non-slip floor surface are among some of the improvements unveiled at Kelvedon station as part of a huge overhaul of the footbridge.

The £700,000 bridge refurbishment, included repairs to concrete structures and installing new steel reinforcements.

Improvements to passenger safety were of utmost concern, so big changes were made to flooring and handrails, and the height of the bridge parapet was also raised as an additional safety measure.

“I would like to thank customers for their patience while this work was carried out.

“Investing in upgrades to stations across the network is extremely important to Greater Anglia, demonstrating our commitment to providing excellent facilities and service to our customers.”
