Ticket Office Availability (Lack of)

The MRUA has again raised the issue of Manningtree ticket office being unavailable more often than is reasonable.  The official line from Greater Anglia is that is is due to long term staff sickness but that is now wearing a bit thin and contingency plans need to be in place to ensure the ticket office is open at the advertised times.

The problem has been further exacerbated recently with the station itself being locked up making the ticket machine - the suggested alternate to the closed ticket office - inaccessible too.
