ESTA welcomes enhancements to local stations - the cafe at Beccles station has reopened, Thursday to Sunday inclusive, from 7:30 (8:00 Sats and Suns) till 3pm.


On July 20th the new Tourist Information Office opened on Lowestoft station, in larger premises than the former visitor information point. It is currently open Monday to Saturday from 10 till 4pm, with a wide range of train and bus information and leaflets and brochures on places of interest, including this year's ESTA train and bus leaflets. Soft drinks and snacks are available, as are souvenirs and craft items and an impressive range of railway books.


ESTA has continued to press for better integration between the trains and service 99A at Halesworth. We also submitted proposals for the development of this bus link after the current contract expires. We submitted further Stage 4 comments on the transport aspects of the proposed Sizewell C power station, without taking sides for or against nuclear power.


During the last week of October, when the northern half of the line was closed for engineering work, workers were also replacing the northbound platform at Saxmundham station. This was one of the improvements promised for the station by Greater Anglia. When this task is complete, we hope they will start the work on the station building.


Meanwhile we have been in contact with Suffolk Council Council about its bid for funding from the "Better Deal for Bus Users" scheme.
