ESSENTIAL maintenance works will take place as part of an upgrade scheme at Colchester Station.

Improvements are being made at the town's North Station by rail operator Greater Anglia over the coming months.

Works must be carried out when trains are not running and nearby residents have been warned there may be some disruption caused, however the firm expects this to be kept down to an absolute minimum.

From tomorrow until the end of September, platform surfacing works will take place between the hours of 11pm and 7am.

There will then be a break in the works throughout October before further platform construction and track works begin on November 3.

These works will take place between 2am and 4am until December 4.
