Three railways stations in Suffolk and Essex are to get a share of £20 million of funding to improve accessibility at 124 stations across the country.
The cash will go to Bury St Edmunds and Needham Market stations in Suffolk and Colchester North station in Essex.
The enhancements were announced by the Transport Secretary and Welwyn Hatfield MP Grant Shapps and will include new lifts, accessible toilets and customer information screens.
In December, a leading disability charity said that there are still too many stations in the East of England that do not have step-free access.
According to Leonard Cheshire, 30% of stations in the region are inaccessible for people in a wheelchair.
The charity said they expect the Government target to make all journeys step-free by 2030 to be missed.
The government says these improvements are being made through the Access for All programme which, since 2006, has already made more than 200 stations step free.
