Norfolk’s main rail firm has introduced new cleaning technology and more staff to help make its trains safer to use.
Greater Anglia says it has stepped up cleaning procedures as more people start to ride the rails once again now lockdown has been eased.
The operator is recruiting 28 more cleaning staff to be based at stations and depots across its network, including at Norwich.
They will be using backpack vacuum cleaners and fogging guns to disinfect every carriage, as well as indoor areas like waiting rooms.
Greater Anglia train presentation director Martin Moran said: “We’re working hard to make sure that all of our trains and stations are squeaky clean, so that customers feel safe travelling with us.
