Passengers are advised to check how their journey might be affected when vital rail upgrades take place over the August Bank Holiday weekend to improve reliability of services.
Network Rail’s engineers will carry out a programme of upgrades and maintenance work across the region to reduce the number of delays and cancellations and to keep tracks and equipment in safe and reliable condition.
Passengers are advised to check their journey before travelling as some services will be affected over various days across the weekend bank holiday including:
Ellie Burrows, Network Rail’s route director for Anglia, said: “We’re carrying out essential upgrades and maintenance to our tracks and equipment to ultimately reduce the number of delays and cancellations to passengers’ journeys. Anyone travelling over the Bank Holiday weekend should check how their journey could be affected.”
Jamie Burles, Greater Anglia’s Managing Director, said: “The bank holiday weekend engineering work is essential to help us provide more punctual services. We are running additional rail replacement buses to ensure customers can maintain social distancing. Customers should wear face covering when on our stations, trains and rail replacement buses, unless they are exempt from doing so.
“Customers should check before they travel and allow more time for their journeys while the work is taking place. We would like to thank them for their patience and understanding and apologise for the inconvenience caused.”
Passengers should check before they travel at http://www.nationalrail.co.uk or with their train operator.
