Listen to this article

Train operator Greater Anglia has announced it has started a ‘comprehensive programme to deep clean its train fleet of over 1,000 vehicles in time for this summer’s London Olympics’.

The interior deep clean of each unit includes work to steam clean all surfaces and floor coverings in each carriage including ceilings, floors and wall panels.

Seat covers and carpets are being shampooed and the deep clean will also ’embrace cleaning of all seat backs, seat frames, luggage racks and the train toilets’.

Greater Anglia said ‘close attention is being given to thoroughly cleaning window frames and glass as well as the lighting units, replacing diffusers where necessary and ensuring that lighting levels in all coaches are set to a uniform standard’.

Work is being undertaken at Greater Anglia’s train servicing depots at Orient Way in East London, Ilford and at Crown Point in Norwich.

Ruud Haket Greater Anglia’s Managing Director said:

“We’re working hard to improve customer service across the Greater Anglia network and ensuring our passengers experience a clean and tidy train is extremely important to us.”

In addition to the interior deep cleaning of its trains, Greater Anglia is also hand-cleaning the exterior of each vehicle in time for the Olympics and this programme is ‘well underway’.
