Greater Anglia customers are advised to check before they travel between Monday 17 and Saturday 22 July, due to six days of planned industrial action by trade unions.

From Monday 17 July to the end of Saturday 22 July, action short of a strike called by the ASLEF trade union, means there will be some cancellations on most Greater Anglia routes throughout the week.

The RMT trade union has also called 24-hour strikes on Thursday 20 July and Saturday 22 July. A further strike has been called for Saturday 29 July. Services will operate on most routes between 07.00 and 23.00 on these days, but some alterations and cancellations will also occur.

There is also the potential for some short notice alterations throughout the period from 17 to 22 July, although everything possible will be done to try and prevent these happening.

On all days affected by industrial action, passenger assistance arrangements will be available as usual. Anyone requiring assistance should plan their journey and book assistance in advance if possible.

Other train operators are also affected by industrial action, so customers are advised to check all their journey details before they travel.

Jamie Burles, Greater Anglia managing director, said:

“While the majority of services will be running as normal during the period affected by industrial action, there will be some alterations and cancellations across our network.

“We are sorry for any inconvenience caused by these service alterations and advise customers to plan ahead and check before they travel.”

Our journey planner and app has been updated with the timetables for Wednesday 19 July to Sunday 22 July. Keep up to date with how industrial action impacts our services on our strike page.
