There are changes to this morning’s trains.


The 8.25am Ipswich to Felixstowe service is cancelled, as well as the 8.54am Felixstowe to Ipswich service.

And the 7.50am service, from Harwich International to Cambridge, will start at Ipswich.

The changes are due to a number of technical faults and a refurbishment programme affecting the availability of some diesel trains used on rural routes.

This is to ensure the maximum number of our train services are able to run.

Abellio Greater Anglia thanked users for their ‘patience and unserstanding’, and said that fleet engineers are working as quickly as possible to resolve the train faults and restore the full scheduled service.

All services running to and from London Liverpool Street may be delayed by up to 10 minutes at short notice due to signalling problems at the station.
