Thousands of extra seats in Greater Anglia’s summer timetable

Monday, 30 April 2018

Rail passengers in East Anglia are set to benefit from more trains and over 7,000 extra seats per week when Greater Anglia’s summer timetable begins on 20 May.

Martin Moran, Greater Anglia’s Commercial Director, said, “Our extra summer services to the capital and coast are back to help boost tourism, days out and shopping trips by train in East Anglia.

“We’re also keeping the 100,000 extra seats we created last year to ensure a more comfortable journey for the 1 million passengers we serve every week.”

Extra summer Sunday services will operate on the Norwich, Ipswich and Colchester to London route and between Norwich and Lowestoft, Ipswich and Peterborough and Ipswich and Felixstowe, as well as additional summer services on Mondays, Fridays and Saturdays on the Norwich to Great Yarmouth line.

There will also be two extra services between Cambridge and Bishop’s Stortford.

Some services in the new timetable have been slightly retimed and there will be rail replacement services at weekends between Ipswich and Felixstowe due to engineering works.

Passengers should check before they travel at
