Greater Anglia is warning rail passengers travelling between Cambridge and London Liverpool Street on Saturday 29 February and Sunday 1 March to expect trains to be much busier than usual.

The line between Ely, Cambridge, Bishop’s Stortford and London Liverpool Street will be open.

However, other train operators are affected by significant engineering works that have closed London King’s Cross for the weekend.

As a result, Greater Anglia trains and stations trains on the West Anglia line between Ely, Cambridge and Liverpool Street are expected to be even busier than usual.

On Saturday 29 February, Greater Anglia’s Stratford to Bishop’s Stortford services will be extending to Cambridge, calling at Whittlesford Parkway and Audley End.

A standard timetabled service is due to run on Sunday.

What did the officials say?

Mike Barry, Greater Anglia Area Customer Service Manager for Cambridge, said:

“We are expecting trains to be full when they leave Cambridge, so that when they stop at stations along the route, such as Bishop’s Stortford, it could be standing room only.

“We will have extra staff at stations to make sure customers catch the right train and to keep everyone safe.

“I would like to ask customers to be patient, especially if they are asked to queue to get into the station or to catch a later train.”
