IMPROVING public transport across rural Waveney is top of the priority list, Suffolk's transport chief has promised.
Guy McGregor, the council's portfolio holder for roads and transport, has vowed to continue investment to improve public transport in north Suffolk.
Mr McGregor recently addressed the annual general meeting of the East Suffolk Travellers' Association in Beccles and told members that he will continue to look at creating better transport links in rural Waveney and improving car parking at the area's train stations.
He said that improving rail services in the county was a priority, including the much-needed passing loop at Beccles. He said: “In reality, that is needed to allow for an hourly train service to Lowestoft but we should also be looking at electrifying these lines to improve the service and make it greener as well.”
