Greater Anglia announces cancellations to train services between London and Southend due to speed restrictions

By YA Reporter in Transport

GREATER Anglia has announced a number of cancellations to its services between London and Southend today.

The operator said that high temperatures have resulted in speed restrictions being imposed to “protect the infrastructure”.

A Greater Anglia spokesman said: “The reduced speeds prevent rails from buckling, as the lower speeds exert less pressure on the rail and they protect overhead lines, which can sag during high temperatures.

“As a consequence of the slower speeds, Greater Anglia have had to reduce the train service.”
