Railway upgrade work on the Clacton-on-Sea and Walton-on-the-Naze lines has been completed during the May Bank Holiday to improve the reliability for users.
Engineers replaced hundreds of components on the overhead wires on the Clacton-on-Sea branch line in order to reduce delays.
Track maintenance was also completed between Thorpe-le-Soken and Clacton-on-Sea. New rails were also installed at Weeley.
Ellie Burrows, Network Rail’s route director for Anglia, said:
“This work is vital to keep our network running safely and smoothly while reducing the risk of delays and cancellations for those who need to travel.
The benefits of this work will remain for years to come, ready for when we welcome back more passengers in the future.”
Passengers are continuously reminded only to use train services if their journey is essential.
