During the hot summer days, ESTA's Chairman  has been in correspondence with Network Rail about the effect of snow last winter on local train services.  These were suspended for 6 days during severe weather.

We have been assured that Network Rail have reviewed their strategy and hope to keep more secondary services running if there is another "Beast from the East." It is also planned to have "off the peg timetables" if weather conditions prevent a full service from operating.


ESTA welcomes  the introduction of through train and bus ticketing to Leiston and Aldeburgh  and will do its best to promote these.  Meanwhile, we continue to publicise bus/train co-ordination to Southwold through our leaflet "Discover the Blyth Valley".


Our efforts succeeded in getting the Help Point moved to a more accessible place at Saxmundham station but we still await action to put a seat under cover - as well as long-term plans for the fire-damaged building.


ESTA is delighted that Suffolk County Council has now erected a bus shelter and timetable for westbound buses at Carlton Crown, on the A146 between Lowestoft and Beccles. We had called for improvements here for a number of years. Funding for this site has come from Carlton Colville Town Council.
