Rail passengers travelling between Ipswich and Felixstowe today could face delays as engineering works mean fewer trains are able to run.

Services running to and from the stations may be cancelled or delayed by up to 15 minutes, with the disruption expected to last until the end of the day.

A spokesman for Greater Anglia said the delays were due to engineering work take place between Woodbridge and Lowestoft which has forced trains to run at a heavily reduced speed on a stretch of track from Westerfield.

This has had a knock-on effect on Greater Anglia and freight services in the area.

The spokesman said: “As a result, we have needed to reduce the Ipswich to Felixstowe service to one train every two hours, with a rail replacement bus service to operate instead of the cancelled train.”
