Fears £35m Ely North junction upgrade could be delayed even longer

There are fears that a £35m upgrade to one of our region's main railway junctions could be delayed even longer than was feared.

Work to expand the capacity and increase the frequency of trains through Ely in Cambridgeshire was due to be finished by 2017.

Now it will be 2019 before Network Rail even begins a new feasibility study into the plans.

It comes after a report raised concerns that a number of level crossings around Ely would not cope with the upgrade.

Today the MP for South West Norfolk Elizabeth Truss met with Network Rail, to push for the improvements to come sooner.
