A £150,000 SCHEME designed to improve services for train passengers has signalled the start of a new era at a Teesside railway station.

Waiting shelters, extra CCTV cameras, improved signage and a ticket machine are among the new facilities now in place at Saltburn station.

And these will be followed by an enhanced public address system and a new electronic information display screen later in the year.

Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council has completed the work after securing funding from Tees Valley Unlimited.

The improvement package is part of the first phase of the Tees Valley Metro project, for which £4.9m was allocated by the Government in 2010 to deliver improvements to the rail network across the area.

Councillor Helen McLuckie, Cabinet Member for Highways, Transportation and Planning, said: "This project has allowed for a series of improvements to be carried out to improve experiences for passengers travelling to and from Saltburn.

"I am delighted that this work, which also forms part of our wider ambitions to attract businesses to the Borough through improved transport links, has been completed."
