Network Rail’s Anglia Route comprises over 1,700 miles of track from London Liverpool Street station to Norwich in the east and Cambridge in the west, the North London Line from Gospel Oak to Barking East, and Essex Thameside from Fenchurch Street to Shoeburyness. With over 63.6 million passenger journeys, Liverpool Street is the third busiest railway station in Britain and the route is well connected with two airports, Stansted and Southend. Crossrail, when completed in 2019, will run from Shenfield to Liverpool Street and connect to Heathrow, and will transform journeys into the Capital by delivering more capacity and better connections to the City.
