Over the Christmas period, Network Rail will carry out improvements, maintenance, and upgrades on part of Greater Anglia’s network.
To minimise disruption, the majority of work will be carried out overnight and on Christmas Day and Boxing Day.
Although some routes will be affected by the work, most of Anglia’s network will remain open for business as usual.
The majority of work will take place in London from Friday 24 December until Monday 3 January, and includes:
The highways authority in Essex will also undertake works to remove a bridge at Generals Lane in Essex.
The following Greater Anglia services will be affected:
The following c2c services will be affected:
Passengers are advised to check before they travel as rail replacement services will be in operation on some routes while the work takes place. Passengers should check with their rail operator how their journey might be affected.
Ellie Burrows, Network Rail’s route director for Anglia, said: “We’ve got a huge package of work planned this Christmas and New Year that will reduce delays, maintain safety and improve reliability across the rail network and we’ve been able to plan this to keep most of the network open. These works are crucial to keep services running safely and reliably. I’d like to thank our passengers and our line side neighbours for their patience while we carry out this important work.”
c2c’s Delivery Director Laura McEwen, said: “As the railway tends to be much quieter over the Christmas and New Year period, it is a good opportunity for our colleagues at Network Rail to carry out essential upgrade work to our rail infrastructure.
“We will make sure our customers can complete their journeys, although some of our services will be operating differently to normal. We would ask our customers to check before they travel over the festive period.” Jamie Burles, Greater Anglia managing director, said: “We know that this year more than ever our customers will be keen to spend Christmas with their loved ones. We will make sure that everyone can complete their journeys, even if part of it is by rail replacement bus.
“We will make sure we keep customers up to date on our website, app and social media – so I’d like to remind people to check before they travel.”
