Rail engineers expect to complete repair works on rail bridge in Manea ahead of weekend services

Friday 1 Jun 2018

Engineers are undertaking urgent repair work on a rail bridge in the Manea area between Ely and Peterborough. An area of deterioration was found on the rail bridge structure during a regular inspection. To protect the safety of those using the 170 rail services that cross the bridge daily , we, in cooperation with our train operator partners, decided not to run  services today between Ely and Peterborough.

Repairs have been progressing throughout the day and we expect the line to reopen for weekend services early Saturday morning.
