Triple jump for Manea

The number of passengers using Manea station on the Peterborough – Ely line has tripled since the introduction of Abellio Greater Anglia’s new two- hourly service in December 2013.

Between 8 December 2013 and 15 March 2014, Manea station was responsible for 1205 passenger journeys compared to the 386 over the same period last year.

The improved service was made possible by Network Rail opening a new island platform at Peterborough.

Once again extra capacity and regular services have proved a winner. Prior to the introduction of the new service, two Cross Country trains per day served Manea station.

Says Jonathan Denby, Abellio Greater Anglia’s Head of Corporate Affairs, ‘We’re pleased to see that, in just three months, the new two-hourly service for Manea station is proving a great success. It is clear that a regular timetable has benefited this community and helped to make rail travel an attractive alternative to the car for commuting and leisure purposes alike.’
