Work Has Finished Behind Platform 1 At Ipswich Station

In Curious Rail Construction At Ipswich Station, I questioned if construction had started on a Platform 0 at Ipswich station.

When I went through the station yesterday, I took this picture from of Platform 1 and the works behind.

There is still need to create more platforms at Ipswich.

The full length of the main Up Platform 2 will be needed for Greater Anglia’s new and longer, Stadler Flirts, which will call three times an hour on their way to London.

In addition, there will be a Peterborough to Colchester service stopping at Platform 2 once an hour.

So it will be unlikely, that the occasional Lowestoft or Felixstowe can stop at the Norwich end of Platform 2, as they do now.

A Platform 0 has been talked about to solve the problem, but nothing seems to have happened yet.
