Having a high-quality, reliable railway service in place in East Suffolk is vital for our county’s economy. Dan recently attended a ceremony at Beccles railway station to mark the beginning of work on the Beccles Loop scheme, which will enable an hourly service to run between Lowestoft and Ipswich, as well as a more regular service to market towns on the East Suffolk Line such as Halesworth from December. Currently, train services between Ipswich and Lowestoft run every two hours. The £4 million project has been jointly funded by Network Rail and Suffolk County Council and will bring a disused platform back into use at Beccles station as part of long term plans to resignal the East Suffolk Line. Along with his fellow Suffolk MPs Peter Aldous and Therese Coffey, and Suffolk County Council Leader Mark Bee, Dan has worked for some time to secure funding for this important rail improvement project, which will bring many benefits for local commuters, businesses and the wider Suffolk economy.
