Anglia track renewals

We’re renewing sections of track and track components across Anglia for a safer and more reliable railway

Our modern engineering trains known as the High Output trains will be working along the Anglia route from June 2018 until 2019 as part of our Railway Upgrade Plan. This work involves renewing the track as well as components including ballast and sleepers.

The High Output Ballast Cleaner System (BCS)

By using our High Output trains to deliver these works we are reducing the amount of time the railway needs to be closed than would normally be required under the traditional method, reducing the impact on both lineside neighbours and passengers.

There are two types of High Output trains which are used along the Anglia route, the Ballast Cleaner (BCS) and the Track Renewal (TRS).  The BCS and TRS will be deployed across the Anglia route in the coming year. The BCS will begin on 25 June 2018 between Harold Wood and Shenfield, then at various other locations along the route*.

*Dates and times are subject to change.

TRS works August - November 2018

BCS works June - December 2018

However, these trains will generate some noise and may cause some disturbance. We apologise in advance for any disturbance this may cause you.
