ENGINEERING work on railway lines means Anglia Railways' mainline and local services will be disrupted for the next two weekends.

It means mainline trains between Ipswich and Norwich will be replaced by buses all day and services between Ipswich and Cambridge and Peterborough will be replaced by buses between Ipswich and Stowmarket.

This weekend, mainline services will be reduced to one per hour with buses replacing trains between Ipswich and Norwich.

From Norwich, buses will depart on the hour and half-past the hour. The half-past buses will go direct to Ipswich, while those on the hour will make additional stops at Diss and Stowmarket.
