Greater Anglia announce regular services to return after track repair
Normality is expected to return to commuters' lives next week as a full train service between Norwich and London is set to get back on track.
Regular service on the Great Eastern Main Line, which includes Diss Railways Station, is expected to resume on Monday.
The announcement was made by Greater Anglia today, with engineers scheduled to install a new specialist piece of track overnight this weekend.
Two platforms at London Liverpool Street station were closed this week following the discovery of a crack in a piece of track during a routine inspection by Network Rail.
This affected a number of peak Greater Anglia services using the Great Eastern Main Line.
Steve Hooker, Network Rail’s head of maintenance for Anglia, said: “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.”
Saturday services will run as scheduled, however there may be some changes to morning services on Sunday.
