Greater Anglia is advising passengers that some services are set to be very busy on Wednesday 4 March when Norwich City are away to Tottenham Hotspur in the 5th round of the FA Cup.
In addition to the scheduled services, there will be an additional service after the match – the 23.47 Liverpool Street to Norwich (calling Stratford 23.56, Ipswich 01.03, Stowmarket 01.15, Diss 01.28 and Norwich 01.50). Other scheduled services will operate as per the normal timetable.
Passengers are advised that there are likely to be large queues and very busy trains, because of the expected numbers of people. Extra staff will be on hand to help.
James Reeve, Greater Anglia’s Area Customer Service Manager, said: “Trains and stations are expected to be very busy as people make their way to and from Tottenham Hotspur stadium.
“People should buy their tickets in advance where possible and allow more time for their journeys.
“It’s great to be able to support our local community by helping football fans get to this important match. By leaving the car at home and taking the train, fans will reduce their carbon footprint and help protect the environment.”
Passengers can get discounts and deal on fares such as GroupSave, which offers groups of between three and nine people a third off fares, when booking in advance.
To avoid queueing to buy tickets, passengers are advised to get them in advance online or via the Greater Anglia app to reduce their waiting times at the station.
Everyone is encouraged to check before they travel either via the Greater Anglia app, website or Twitter.
