The Anglia route covers five main corridors through Greater London, Cambridgeshire, Essex, Norfolk and Suffolk
Outside London, Anglia has the fastest growing employment in England. The investment we’re making as part of our Railway Upgrade Plan will improve passenger services and help deliver economic growth, reduced environmental impact and regeneration of communities.
The Anglia route takes in the railway from London Liverpool Street station, which we own and manage, to Norwich, Cambridge, Hertford, Southend, Stansted Airport and the Port of Felixstowe; services into Essex from London Fenchurch Street; and Overground services from Stratford to Richmond.
London Liverpool Street is the capital’s third busiest station, with 63.6 million passenger journeys passing through every year.
Main railway lines:
- the Great Eastern Mainline from Liverpool Street to Norwich and branches
- the Cross-country Corridor via Ely from Ipswich/Norwich to Cambridge/Peterborough
- the West Anglia Mainline from Liverpool Street to Cambridge, Kings Lynn and branches
- the Orbital Routes, comprising the North London line from Stratford to Richmond and the Barking to Gospel Oak line
- the Essex Thameside line from Fenchurch Street to Shoeburyness via Upminster and Tilbury.
We work closely with local communities to promote safety by the railway. Find out more on our community safety page.
