Due to vandalism at London Liverpool Street trains have to run at reduced speed on some lines.

Train services running to and from these stations may be delayed or revised. Disruption is expected until further notice.

A scaffold pole was thrown over a bridge on to the railway lines near Liverpool Street in the early hours of this morning causing significant damage to some signal equipments.
The pole has been removed and the Network Rail response team are on site accessing the damage.
Because of this, we have limited access to the running lines. This in turn is causing congestion, delays and alterations to the train service this morning.

ARL services from Liverpool Street to Cheshunt, Chingford and Enfield Town are affected by this incident.
The Elizabeth Line from Liverpool Street to Shenfield is also affected by this incident.

Greater Anglia and Network Rail are sorry if your journey has been affected by this disruption.

Specific train service alterations are available here:

Advance purchase tickets holders will be allowed to travel on earlier or later trains if their booked service is cancelled.

If your journey with us has been delayed by 15 minutes or more, you may be entitled to compensation for a portion of your fare. Please visit for details

To maximise space for all customers we do not allow full size bikes on our rail replacement buses. We also do not carry e-scooters and electric bikes.
