Passengers experienced delays at Ipswich train station this morning after over-running engineering works blocked some of the lines.

Train services between Ipswich and Cambridge were cancelled or delayed earlier today due to the ongoing problems at the Ipswich depot.

All lines are now reopen and no services are being delayed.

At the time of the delays, a spokesman for Greater Anglia said: “Due to over-running engineering works at Ipswich some lines are blocked and we cannot get trains out from the depot, so some services have had to be cancelled.

“Network Rail engineers are working as quickly as they can to get it fixed.”

The delays were first reported by Greater Anglia at 10.05am with a number of services cancelled.

If your journey with Greater Anglia was delayed by 30 minutes or more, you may be entitled to compensation for a portion of your fare.
