Suffolk/Norfolk: £2.2 Billion To Be Spent On Railways

Network Rail have announced that £2.2 billion pounds is going to be spent on the railways in the East of England.

The train line from London to Norwich and Ipswich has been highlighted as one of the areas needing the most work.  The money's going to be spent on improving junctions and replacing track and overhead lines.

The freight line to Felixstowe has also been identified as a line needing improvement.

The money is also going to be spent creating a new rail operating centre in Romford in 2014, which will eventually control the entire railway in the Anglia region, covering parts of London, Essex, Suffolk, Norfolk, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire.  The railway between Norwich, Yarmouth and Lowestoft will be the first part of the route to have control migrated to the Romford ROC in 2016.
