Network Rail has thanked passengers for their patience after further improvements were made to the Norwich to London line over the weekend, which serves the Diss Express area.

Nearly 1,000 metres of track was replaced on the route across the Bank Holiday weekend, which customer service director for Abellio Greater Anglia Andrew Goodrum said would help deliver a “better” and “more reliable” service.

Network Rail’s route managing director for Anglia, Richard Schofield, said: “Our orange army have been hard at work this Bank Holiday weekend carrying out essential works as part of our Railway Upgrade Plan, which will improve the reliability of train services for passengers in Norfolk, Suffolk and Essex on this very busy line into London.

“Work also took place to prepare for the arrival of the Elizabeth Line which will transform journeys into the Capital. I’d like to thank passengers for their patience while the work was carried out.”

Further work will take place over the late Bank Holiday weekend, and passengers are advised to check before they travel.
