Additional shelter confirmed for Cleethorpes

Thursday 25th January 2018

Plans to deliver a new customer waiting shelter at Cleethorpes railway station have now been confirmed. The new facility will provide shelter for those waiting for services towards Barton-on-Humber as well as those transferring to or from services to Manchester Airport, Sheffield and Doncaster.

The new shelter has been made possible through a funding partnership between ourselves and the Barton - Cleethorpes Community Rail Partnership, with the Association of Community Rail Partnerships and the Department for Transport providing £10k of funding.

The modern structure will be installed on platforms two and three and will provide both seating and shelter for customers. It is expected that work to install the shelter will commence and be completed during March this year.

Graham Meiklejohn, Regional Development Manager for TransPennine Express, said: “We are delighted to have worked with our partners at the Barton - Cleethorpes Community Rail Partnership, the Association of Community Rail Partnerships and the Department for Transport to enable this new customer facility to be funded and will now proceed to have it installed. Listening to feedback from customers and stakeholders it clear that the shelter is needed at Cleethorpes and we are pleased to be meeting that request.”

Gill Simpson, Officer for Barton - Cleethorpes Community Rail Partnership, said: “The Barton-Cleethorpes Community Rail Partnership is really excited that this much-needed facility is going to be installed on platforms 2 & 3 at Cleethorpes station. Our members and train customers have been telling us how a shelter would make a difference to their journey and now it will. It just goes to prove that partnership working can really make a difference and in this instance change things for the benefit of rail passengers.”

We will be investing £18million in stations across the north over the life of our franchise.

Our existing trains are currently receiving a £32million refurbishment with comfortable seating, larger tables, high quality carpets and plug and USB points at every pair of seats. Free Wi-Fi is being installed on-board along with an on-board media server, allowing customers to view the latest TV shows, news and films.
