Stockton Council's works on the first part of a range of improvements to Eaglescliffe Station are now completed creating improved facilities for passengers.
A new ticket office at the Station has been built as part of the wider Tees Valley Metro Project. Further improvements will continue this year which will see toilet facilities, a refurbished station building with a waiting room, improved ramps and a large extension to the car park.
The Council secured funding from the Department for Transport for the project which is being delivered in partnership with Tees Valley Unlimited, Northern Rail, Network Rail, Grand Central Railways and Chester-le-Track, who will operate the Ticket Office.
The new Ticket Office is now open and will be staffed Monday to Friday from 7.15am until 6.15pm and on Saturdays and Bank Holidays from 7.15am until 1.15pm. It will not operate on Sundays.
Councillor Mike Smith, Stockton Council's Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Transport, said: "We are committed to improving our railway stations to enhance the transport network across our Borough.
"This new ticket office will be a welcome addition to what is an already popular and well-used station. Eaglescliffe is an intercity station with direct services to London and the series of improvements will provide a much improved passenger experience."
