The services of Greater Anglia are set to get up and running starting this Monday following the discovery of a crack on a piece of the track earlier during the week.
During the weekend, engineers are set to install a new specialist piece of track to get services going again.
The fault in the track was discovered when Network Rail started a routine inspection. It meant that a number of peak services of the Greater Anglia that are using the Great Eastern main line were affected.
The Network Rail’s head of maintenance for Anglia, Steve Hooker, stated: “I understand that some passengers will have had some difficult journeys over the last few days and I’d like to apologise to those who have been affected. We have worked as quickly as possible to build a new piece of track so that services can return to normal. I’d like to thank passengers for their patience during this time.”
Greater Anglia serves the routes out of the London Liverpool Street to the likes of Peterborough, Colchester, Norwich, and Ipswich. It said that its Saturday services will run as scheduled. However, it also noted that there may be some modifications to its services on Sunday.
