King’s Lynn railway station has been allocated £80,000 from the Passenger Benefit Fund for improvements.

It is one of 59 stations set to benefit under the first phase  of a programme aimed at improving facilities.

Govia Thameslink Railway (GTR) asked users what they would like to see at 274 stations and Lynn’s money will be spent on toilet facilities and other suggested schemes are also to be carried out.

Work is due to be completed by the spring and will see the men’s toilets refurbished with general work and redecoration of the ladies block.

As part of the scheme four other stations in the London area are to have automatic defibrillators installed in a pilot project. If the introduction of the potentially life-saving machines proves a success, GTR hopes to roll them out to as many of its stations as possible.
