Great Northern, Greater Anglia and Network Rail are very sorry for the disruption to your journey while work to replace two railway bridges takes place. The time taken to replace these bridges means that it is not possible to confine the work to weekends. The dates chosen are during school holidays where the number of people travelling is reduced.
