New platform opens
December 19, 2011
Seating capacity in the west of the National Express East Anglia franchise has increased by a fifth with the start of the December timetable.
Longer, 12-car trains are operating between Cambridge and London Liverpool Street, thanks to the opening of a new platform at Cambridge station and the lengthening of other platforms along the route.
Journey times have also improved on several routes and Bishops Stortford will get more frequent services to Stratford.
Mark Phillips, deputy managing director, National Express East Anglia, said: ‘The increased capacity at Cambridge will improve performance and reliability.’
