Customers using March railway station are being warned the footpath leading to it will temporarily close later this month, as improvement work being carried out by Greater Anglia progresses.

The car park will be resurfaced and lined from Thursday (24) to Tuesday March 29. Large construction vehicles will be on site and, as a result, people will be unable to use the public footpath leading to the station.

The only access will be via the road on Station Approach.
