East Midlands Trains gets started on further improvements at Wellingborough station

East Midlands Trains has announced plans for further improvements to Wellingborough, with passengers set to benefit from a range of station enhancements.


The first phase of works will see the station completely repainted to offer a fresh, bright new look.  An additional cycle and waiting shelter will then be installed, with work then planned to start on providing a new low counter ticket window to offer improved access for all passengers.


Just a year ago, local MP Peter Bone official unveiled the station's new footbridge and lifts, providing step-free access between the station and platforms for the first time. The further enhancements being delivered by East Midlands Trains will offer even more improvements for passengers using Wellingborough station.


Karen Miller, Customer Service Manager for East Midlands Trains, said: "It's important to us that our stations offer a welcoming environment for passengers, and that's why we're in the process of investing around £10 million on station improvements across our network.


"As a key station on our network, we are looking forward to delivering even further improvements at Wellingborough station."


The improvement works are due to start in mid October and will be complete by the end of the year.
