From building new stations, to upgrading track and signalling infrastructure, we're ensuring the sustainability of our railway in the East of England for years to come, all while running one of the busiest and safest railways in the world.
Project Anglia isn’t just one piece of work. To make a real difference to passengers we have to complete a package of different projects, from extending platforms to allow longer trains with more seats to run to installing modern signalling systems and improving stations.
We’re modernising the railway for passengers, improving services and making it easier to maintain whilst keeping trains running.
One of the most complex projects involves
modernising overhead lines which supply electricity to power trains to
and from London Liverpool Street. These lines were last replaced in the
1950s and 60s and can no longer cope with the increased number of
trains. Our engineers are using the coasting method to make sure that wherever possible, we can still keep two lines open for passengers while still maintaining safe working conditions for our site teams. Where possible we work over weekends and bank holidays so that we can keep trains running on weekdays when more people travel and businesses rely on us. Over the next few years
we’ll be working with your train operator to bring you more
information. To find out how our plans impact services into Liverpool

Running a safe, reliable railway depends on the track being in good
condition – not just the metal rails, but the foundations on which they
sit too. The high output ballast cleaner has been working between Norwich and Ipswich five
nights a week. Every shift so far has been completed on time, renewing
more than 14 miles of railway far more quickly and efficiently than
traditional methods allow.
In November to the end of the year, the machine will return to the
northern end of the line, working between Norwich and Stowmarket. In
2016 it will continue to work between London and Norwich and will also
start working between Ely to Peterborough through the spring and summer.
In late 2016 and into 2017, we'll be installing new
track on the line between London and Norwich as we continue to upgrade
