“I am pleased that most of our Intercity services are now running to their planned capacity as coaches have returned to service following scheduled maintenance. On our Rural network, we have now resolved most of the reliability issues that had affected services on the branch lines out of Ipswich and Norwich, when a number of trains were undergoing repair. We are also continuing to work with our industry partners to improve reliability.”
