TRAIN passengers will be able to check car parking availability at stations thanks to a new online service.

Greater Anglia has introduced live occupancy information at 14 of its stations, including Kelvedon and Hatfield Peverel.

The scheme is also planned for stations in Witham and Marks Tey.

The new service allows customers to check the number of spaces available in station car parks before setting off on their journey.

It will also offer expected occupancy for any given time or day of the week based on historical trend data.

Simone Bailey, Greater Anglia’s Asset Management Director, said: “We know customers who drive to stations want to be able to park as quickly and easily as possible, which is why we’re committed to improving parking across the Greater Anglia network, making life a little easier for our customers.”

The information is available via and Great Anglia Parking Portal -
