Greater Anglia is spending more than £1m painting 70 stations across its network in a two-year programme lasting until June next year.

Stations that have been painted include Ipswich, Stowmarket, Manningtree, and Lowestoft in a programme project which has seen 8,500 litres of paint used – enough to fill 106 bath tubs or three Olympic swimming pools.

The work was carried out during off-peak hours and when stations were closed.

Simone Bailey, Greater Anglia’s Asset Management Director, said: “We know our passengers care about the cleanliness and appearance of their local stations and we are very pleased with the feedback from this project so far.

“The paint project makes stations look brighter and cleaner, and feel more pleasant.”

Stations were painted in heritage colours including traffic grey, traffic red, hollybush green and signal white, black and yellow.
