  • Anglia

    We have big plans for Anglia. We’ve already started investing almost £1 billion across 800 miles of track to run more reliable train services.

  •  Overhead power lines 


    On schedule

    Project Anglia isn’t just one piece of work. To make a real difference to passengers we have to complete a package of different projects, from extending platforms to allow longer trains with more seats to run to installing modern signalling systems and improving stations.

    We’re modernising the railway for passengers, improving services and making it easier to maintain whilst keeping trains running.

  • Electrification

    One of the most complex projects involves modernising overhead lines which supply electricity to power trains to and from London Liverpool Street. These lines were last replaced in the 1950s and 60s and can no longer cope with the increased number of trains.

    We have to turn off the power to all four tracks so that our engineers can work safely. Where possible we work over weekends and bank holidays so that we can keep trains running on weekdays when more people travel and businesses rely on us.

    Over the next few years we’ll be working with your train operator to bring you more information. To find out how our plans impact services into Liverpool Street visit Greater Anglia.

    New and longer platforms
