Commuting chaos hits Romford Greater Anglia lines

08:22 07 March 2014

Commuters are facing delays this morning after engineering works overran on the Shenfield to Liverpool Street line.

The train operator says delays of up to 15 minutes are affecting those trying to get into London.

There will be no service at all today between Gidea Park and London to try and ease congestion.

Rail tickets are being accepted on the 86 and 25 buses which stop at stations between Romford and Stratford.

Greater Anglia said the fault would be “fully repaired overnight tonight.”
