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 made representations to East Suffolk Council on the fire-damaged station building at Saxmundham. We are pleased that on October 8th the Planning Committee voted unanimously to accept Greater Anglia's plans for a bungalow-style building and remodelling of the car park. We hope that some improvements will be made to the other platform at the same time.


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.
