Greater Anglia Railway have announced their proposed timetable changes which will be in full operation by December 2021. With proposed extra services between key areas and routes, with the Norwich to London in 90-minutes services on the horizon.
Journeys to/from London and Norwich will have a direct 30-minute frequency from early morning to mid-evening Monday to Saturday. Most journey times between 1 hour 45 minutes and 1 hour 50 minutes. The weekday Norwich in 90 minutes services will all be scheduled at times that suit day trips to London and back with two morning services at 08.00 and 09.00 from Norwich, and two return services – one between 17.00 and 17.15 and another between 19.00 and 19.15 from London. All trains operated with new longer, higher capacity trains, with hourly Sunday frequency, plus a couple of extra services at key times of day.
Norwich to Lowestoft will see extra services at peak times on Mondays and Fridays, to and from the city to the town. Hourly Sunday service, similar to current service. With all trains continuing to operate with new, higher capacity trains. Ipswich to Lowestoft will continue to have core hourly service frequency on Monday to Saturdays. Hourly Sunday service, similar to current service, with trains continuing to operate with new, higher capacity trains.
Access to the full proposal is available on the Greater Anglia website for further proposed service alterations.
