Ellie Burrows, Network Rail’s route director for Anglia, said: “We’re carrying out essential track renewals and maintenance to keep services running safely and reliably across the region. We can’t carry out this work while trains are running so rail replacement services will be in place and passengers are advised to check how their journey might be affected before they travel.
“I’d like to thank passengers for their patience while this work takes place.”
Jamie Burles, Greater Anglia Managing Director, said: “This track maintenance work will help to improve punctuality and performance along these key parts of our network.
“We will be running a rail replacement bus service while the work takes place, so customers will be able to complete their journeys. Passengers should check before they travel, allow more time for their journey and wear a face covering when travelling by train or rail replacement bus and at our stations.
“We have several measures in place to keep customers safe including regular cleaning and sanitisation of trains and stations, and high levels of face covering compliance.
“We would like to thank customers for their patience while this work takes place.”
