No trains as upgrade of Anglia railway line set to start


Network Rail have announced that they will be working in Maryland on the main line from Norwich to London this weekend to renew the track.

Over a total of nine weekends, the engineers will carry out the following work:

  • replace track and points in Maryland to improve punctuality and reliability
  • overhead wire power supply upgrades for new trains
  • works in Ilford to improve drainage

A rail replacement service will operate during the works.

What did the officials say?

Ellie Burrows, Network Rail Routes Manager for Anglia, said:

“This is a very busy section of the network that sees the hundreds of trains that our passengers rely on pass through every day. This work will help us maintain a safer and more reliable railroad for passengers by reducing the number of rail services affected by delays and cancellations.

Jamie Burles, Chief Executive of Greater Anglia, said:

“We are very sorry for the inconvenience this work is causing to passengers. We will ensure that all customers can make their journey, even if part of it is by bus.

“This work is essential so that, together with Network Rail, we can improve the punctuality and reliability of our railway.”
