Project Information:

As a part of Network Rail’s Railway Upgrade Plan, engineers will start a £60.4m programme of works to transform the single track branch line to allow more freight being transported by rail to and from the Port of Felixstowe by installing a 1.4km track loop near Trimley Station. This additional track will allow the line to operate more effectively, giving the flexibility needed to run more freight trains as well as improve the reliability of existing passenger services.
