Strikes To Hit Greater Anglia Services

Rail passengers in Cambridgeshire are advised to check before they travel for the rest of this week.

On 31 May and 3 June, there will be a reduced service on a limited number of routes. Most routes, including all regional lines, will have no service at all. Where services do run, they will start later and finish earlier than normal, with start/finish times varying across the network.

On 2 June, services will operate between 07.00 and 23.00, with all last trains reaching their destination by 23.00. Some routes will have a reduced frequency, but many routes will have a normal or near normal service during the hours that trains are running.

Some of the first services on Thursday 1 June and Sunday 4 June may also be affected. Although these are not strike days, there will be some knock-on effects from the days before.

On 1 June, most routes will also see some planned cancellations, due to action short of a strike.

Service Summary for 31 May

A reduced service will operate on a limited number of routes.

Hourly service between Norwich and London Liverpool Street; Colchester and London Liverpool Street; Southend Victoria and London Liverpool Street; and for Stansted Express services between Stansted Airport and London Liverpool Street

Trains that do run are expected to start from 07.00 onwards, with trains operating until mid to late evening and all last trains finishing earlier than normal

One train every two hours between Cambridge and London Liverpool Street from 08.00 until early evening, with the last train from London back to Cambridge at 18.58 on 31 May only.

No services running on other lines, including on regional/branch lines, other than those listed above

Service Summary for 1 June

On Thursday 1 June, due the knock-on effects of the previous day’s strike there will be no services before 07.00 and, due to action short of a strike, there will be some cancellations across the Greater Anglia network throughout the day (full list attached at the end of this release).

Service Summary for 2 June

On Friday 2 June, most services will operate with trains running on most Greater Anglia routes between 07.00 and 2300, with all last trains reaching their destination by 23.00.

Some routes, including Norwich to London and Ipswich to Lowestoft, will have a reduced frequency, but many routes will have a normal or near normal service during the hours that trains are running.

However, there will be no services between Walton-on-the-Naze and Colchester Town/Colchester, or between Hertford East and London, or between Stratford and Meridian Water.

Service Summary for 3 June

A reduced service will operate on a limited number of routes.

Hourly service between Norwich and London Liverpool Street; Colchester and London Liverpool Street; Southend Victoria and London Liverpool Street; and for Stansted Express services between Stansted Airport and London Liverpool Street
Trains that do run are expected to start from 07.00 onwards, with trains operating until mid to late evening and all last trains finishing earlier than normal

No services running on other lines, including on regional/branch lines, other than those listed above. That also means no Greater Anglia services at all serving Cambridge.

Passengers who have already pre-booked tickets to travel on strike days can change them, use them to travel on either the day before or up to two days later, or apply for a refund by going back to their original retailer.

Passenger assistance will be available as usual for all trains which are running. Anyone requiring assistance who cannot avoid travelling by train on strike days should plan their journey and book assistance in advance if possible.
