Anglia Route: lines out of Liverpool Street including Great Eastern main line
There are several big developments on this line. The completion of the overhead line upgrade on the Great Eastern main line, track renewal and new signalling is a major component of the 2014 - 2019 plans.
Another priority is finishing the Crossrail service from Shenfield to Liverpool Street.
That development will lead to:
- More seats and direct services to Thames Valley, central London and Heathrow Airport.
- New Crossrail station at Liverpool Street will free up platform space, enabling opportunities for more services on the Great Eastern main line.
In addition Network Rail are committed to examining how to improve journey times on the line.
