Greater Anglia are aiming to restore services after a day of disruption on the Great Eastern Main Line.
Work to repair overhead line damage affecting Norwich/Ipswich-London trains has been completed, we're now working to restore services. JA
Commuters in Ipswich are facing a day of frustration as the aftermath of the St Jude storm continues to cause problems.
Several passengers have been forced to wait for buses at the town's railway station as a result of services being suspended.
Meanwhile, road users have also been hit hard with Ipswich's one way system also partially blocked due to storm damage.
Passengers are being told to expect delays of up to 30 minutes between Stevenage and London King's Cross until at least 14:00 this afternoon due to over-running engineering works.
National Rail have announced that the Stansted Express is now operating a half hourly service after earlier disruption.
After an earlier signally problem at Peterborough station, power has been restored but engineers remain on site. Passengers are told to expect delays until further notice.
Commuters are facing another day of disruption on the region's trains following yesterday's dramatic weather conditions.
Overhead line damage and poor rail conditions are affecting major routes through Norfolk, South, Essex, Cambridgeshire, and Hertfordshire.
The Stansted Express has been suspended and there are no trains between:
Stevenage and London King's Cross
Broxbourne and Hertford East
Cheshunt and Cambridge
Ipswich and Manningtree
Manningtree and Harwich Town
Ipswich and Lowestoft
Sudbury and Marks Tey
Witham and Braintree
Delays and road closed due to fallen tree and fallen power cables on A140 Norwich Road in both directions between Wood Lane and Parker's Lane.
The M11 in Essex remains closed southbound between junction 8 and junction 7. The incident, which involves an overturned HGV, happened just before 7.30am.
– The Highways Agency
"The Highways Agency is working hard with its contractors to reopen the carriageway as soon as it is safe to do so.
Recovery is already on scene but will take some time to remove the vehicle.
Drivers are advised to allow extra time or find an alternate route, with long delays in the area.
A fully signed diversion, following the hollow square symbol, is in place via the A120, A10 and A414."
Due to storm damage, no East Coast trains are running in or out of London King’s Cross station. There are no services running south of Peterborough and all other East Coast southbound trains are terminating early.
As a result, many trains are subject to short term cancellation and delays, and currently, there is no firm indication when services will be resumed.
Other train companies including Virgin, East Midlands and Chiltern are also experiencing severe disruption.
The storm damage has resulted in multiple incidents involving overhead power lines, with many fallen trees and debris across the line – and the heavy rain has flooded track in places, causing problems to signalling.
Network Rail says they are working hard to clear the debris from the track and to resolve other issues, but it is likely the work will take much of the day.
There will be no Greater Anglia services until at least 12 noon as high winds continue to disrupt travel plans across the region.
#UKstorm NO Greater Anglia train services until at least 12:00 today. Please don't set out until trains are confirmed as running. PB
