National Express East Anglia (NXEA) have now offered Nigel Clark at Marks Tey station a six month extension to enable him to continue selling coffees etc. during the rebuilding works. Mr Clark's business will be located in a secure metal shed during this period. However, a number of legal issues need to be clarified before agreement on going forward can be reached. Longer term, NXEA will be going out to tender for the new retail unit that will be included in the refurbished station.
As previously mentioned here, Mr Clark had been threatened with eviction and some 700 commuters have signed a petition in support of him and local MP Priti Patel has raised her concerns in the House of Commons.
