The A6 London Road is closed in both directions due to a serious collision between Wisgreaves Road and Haig Street.
After a week of disruption rail commuters can travel from Ely to Peterborough again after the line reopened this morning.
It was closed after a freight train derailed on Monday, 14 August seriously damaging the track.
No-one was injured.
A crane was needed to remove the heavy containers and their wagons before repair work could begin, with bus replacement services provided for passengers.
In total engineers replaced nearly ¼ mile of track.
Rail experts say the cost of the derailment could top a million pounds.
Our engineers and specialist teams have worked tirelessly over the last week to recover the derailed wagons and carry out major repair work so that services can resume today as planned.
I’d like to thank passengers for their patience while we completed the repairs.
