Greater Anglia Route Upgrade


The Greater Anglia railway route from London Liverpool Street to destinations in East Anglia has seen major changes this year already. It is set to receive more investment resulting in disruption to services from September so that they can improve the route.

Network Rail will work on upgrading the signalling system, power supply and install new track where needed. All the work planned to be carried out will allow the train operating company to run a more reliable service once things are fully up and running again.
Improvement works will occur at various locations including Liverpool Street, the Elmswell area, Colchester and Stratford (Stratford will be having its overhead wires replaced toward the end of the year).

Greater Anglia and National Rail Enquiries will provide more details nearer the time.

Howard Smith, TfL Rail Operations Director, said: “Starting work to extend the platforms at Liverpool Street over Christmas will allow us to introduce the longer, nine-carriage new trains for passengers between Liverpool Street and Shenfield next year. Along with the progress being made at Ilford and Romford stations by Network Rail, customers using this section of the route will see some real benefits.”
