A £1 million project to replace the platform at Sheringham Railway Station is due to come to an end this week.

Greater Anglia said the link connecting Sheringham and Cromer would go back into operation on Thursday (May 16) following six weeks of works.

The project has involved installing new 80 metre platform, improved lighting and a new passenger shelter.

The previous 40-metre platform, installed in 1967, was too short to fit Greater Anglia's new bi-mode trains, which can switch between electric and diesel power.

The project was only supposed to take a month, but works were delayed because a batch of beams supplied were found to be faulty.
