Three station ticket offices could be closed

JOBS could be lost as three ticket offices at train stations in Thurrock could close.

A report by Sir Roy McNulty for the Department For Transport recommends replacing ticket offices at East Tilbury, Chafford Hundred and Ockendon, with unmanned machines.

Union bosses at the Transport Salaried Staffs Association said the “hit list” could mean the loss of several jobs at smaller stations.

Union leader Gerry Doherty told a reporter that: “Not only are unmanned stations less secure, tickets bought from machines are usually more expensive.”
