More delays for commuters
RUSH-hour rail services between East Anglia and London were delayed by up to 30 minutes today for the second day running.
RAIL services between East Anglia and London are still facing delays of up to an hour - for a second day running.
A broken track in the Colchester area has resulted in the closure of the London bound track resulting in more misery for commuters heading to the capital.
A spokesman for Network Rail said services in all directions are currently being run on a single track. He said: “We advise people where possible to allow extra time for the journeys. We expect the problem to be sorted by lunchtime.”
Rush-hour services were severely delayed forcing operators National Express East Anglia to cut some of its services heading to the capital.
