Upgrade work has been completed between Norwich and Lowestoft, at Cantley, by Network Rail to provide better journeys for passengers.
Nearly 2.5 miles of track has been replaced at Cantley station and follows on from work to replace nearly 1 mile of track at Buckenham and Cantley to maintain a reliable railway.
Additionally, a new vehicle deck was installed at Station Road level crossing, and platform resurfacing work was completed at the station.
Ellie Burrows, route director for Anglia said: “We’ve carried out as much work as we can during this closure which will reduce the number of delays and cancellations to passengers’ journeys and maintain safety. This couldn’t have been completed without the patience and co-operation of the local community, and the British Sugar factory and I’d like to say thank you for the support while we carried out the work.”
Jamie Burles, Greater Anglia managing director, said: “These upgrades will provide huge benefits to those who travel on our network between Norwich and Lowestoft. These works will help to improve the punctuality and reliability of our services, which is essential now that more people are travelling with us, and it will enhance Cantley station.
“We would like to thank customers for their patience while this essential work was carried out.”
