Less weekend improvement work planned as holiday season gets underway
With summer almost here and the main holiday season soon to get underway, National Express East Anglia is informing its customers that many Saturdays and summer weekends over the next 3 months are set to be free of Network Rail improvement works on the mainline route between Norwich, Ipswich, Colchester and London Liverpool Street. This means that holidaymakers and day trippers can make travel plans without the need to check for any engineering work service alterations at weekends.
And with plenty of good value advance fares available, customers are advised to book early at: www.nationalexpresseastanglia.com to secure the best travel deals over the holiday season. National Express also offers 2for1 deals on admission to many London attractions, including theatres, hotels and restaurants as well as family attractions. Customers can collect a voucher booklet for the 2for1 admission offers from their local National Express East Anglia station or download a copy from the website.

“We are pleased that many weekends this summer will be free of Network Rail improvement works on the Norwich to London mainline service, allowing for uninterrupted journeys. Together with our range of good value fares and admission offers, there has never been a better time to plan a family day out or weekend away, or to take the train to your holiday destination.”
