Ellie Burrows, Network Rail’s route director for Anglia, said: “Although most of our passengers are staying at home right now, our engineers are still carrying out essential work like this to keep services running smoothly and safely every day for key workers and to keep vital freight services moving.
“This work will improve reliability for years to come, meaning fewer delays and cancellations now and when our passengers return.”
Passengers are advised to only travel when essential during the coronavirus pandemic.
