ESTA's Chairman has written to Greater Anglia and Network Rail managers about the disruption to services in the first half of December. In the short term we want to see improvements to passenger information and service reliability, while appreciating that in some case alternative arrangements were put in place.

In the longer term we urge that a full inquiry be undertaken into what went wrong and how it could have been avoided.


ESTA has paid to have new boards at Somerleyton, Haddiscoe and Westerfield stations to tell users what we are doing and give useful journey information.


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.


We are pleased that work has started on enlarging and enhancing the car park at Saxmundham station. ESTA supported the planning application and looks forward to the rebuilding of the station house as a bungalow and improvement to the northbound platform during the summer.


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