Can you tell me more about the incident?

The train operators are doing all we can in order to get our services moving once again. We understand that sitting on a stationary train is frustrating; however we do ask passengers to remain inside the train and do not attempt to self-evacuate. This happens all too often and will only delay you further, as well as risking danger due to the electrified rail, on-coming trains and track side objects.

We will provide you with timely updates and are working to get you on the move as soon as we are able to.

Description

Lines have now reopened following a number of incidents between Cambridge and Kings Lynn. Trains running between these stations may still be delayed or cancelled.

We anticipate this will continue until 19:00.

Please note, CrossCountry and Greater Anglia services are able to run normally.

Customer Advice:

Services are now running between Ely and Cambridge. But please travel on your normal line of route but allow up to 45 minutes extra to travel and you may have to use a replacement bus.

We still expect some delays to services due to a speed restriction in the Waterbeach area and some trains may still be cancelled or terminate and restart at Downham Market or Ely.

If you are at Ely or Downham Market a shuttle bus service in operation between Downham Market and Ely to supplement the service. We expect these buses to take around 45 minutes in each direction with current traffic levels. These buses are being run at station staff direction so please speak to staff for the replacement bus.

A live disruption map can be viewed here.

Can you tell me more about the incident?

An earlier signalling issues in the Littleport area, along with a track defect in the Waterbeach area, had caused delays of up to an hour on this route earlier today. While Network Rail worked to fix the issue no trains where running between Ely and Downham Market. Great Northern have resumed running trains services between these stations but we expect that there will be a limited service for the rest of the evening. Great Northern have rail replacement vehicles in the area to run if there are any cancelled trains.

Network Rail response staff have found the cause of the signalling fault and have repaired it. Great Northern are currently the process of reintroducing services but expect that there will be a limited service for the remainder of the evening.

If you're travelling at the weekend, train times may not be confirmed until shortly before the start of each weekend, so please reconfirm your journey from the Friday before travel.
