The six-span railway bridge between Ely and Littleport which is set to be strengthened.

Rail passengers have been reminded there will be no trains running between King’s Lynn and Ely during half-term next week to allow for bridge repairs.

Services will be disrupted from Monday until Friday for the £1m bridge repair scheme at Littleport.

A rail replacement bus service will be in place but journey times are expected to take up to 90 minutes longer.

The bus service will serve Lynn, Watlington, Downham Market, Littleport and Ely.

Meanwhile, only one direct train will run between Ely, Cambridge North and King’s Cross per hour and there will be no direct service between Waterbeach and King’s Cross. Passengers will have to change at Cambridge.

Services between Cambridge and King’s Cross will operate normally. See www.greatnorthernrail.com/elyblockade for more details.
