Work on the East Suffolk Line has been completed following 9 days of improvements by Network Rail.
The work near Brampton station involved replacing three kilometres of track along with a mixture of concrete and steel sleepers.
Other works carried out included improving the deck at the level crossing on Station Road in Brampton, plus new fencing, signs, handrails and tactile paving.
From the 24th October to the 2nd November, the line was closed for the work to take place.
Three foot crossings in the area also had the surface improved for pedestrians.
Ellie Burrows, Network Rail’s route director for Anglia said: “We’ve successfully carried out important track upgrades in the Brampton area to improve reliability of the train service for passengers using the East Suffolk Line. We have also used this closure to complete other key improvements to level crossings and the station to avoid separate future closures. I’d like to thank passengers for their patience while we carried out this work.”
Jamie Burles, Greater Anglia’s Managing Director, said: “This work was essential to help improve reliability and punctuality. We would like to thank customers for their patience and understanding while this work was carried out.
“We are working with Network Rail to transform and modernise the railway in the region and our new trains have been running on the East Suffolk Line since last year.”
