Weather: Snow storms cause panic over travel
COMMUTERS are being assured that buses and trains will be running during the evening rush hour.
Panic is beginning to spread and workers fear they could be stranded in the office overnight. However, a spokesman for Ipswich Buses refuted claims services would cease this afternoon.
Colchester Town train station is currently closed as a result of a points failure but all other stations along the National Express East Anglia to London are fully operational, said spokesman Peter Meades.
He said there is an hourly service running between Norwich and Liverpool Street but other services were running as usual.
“We are working very closely with Network Rail and we are planning on running a full peak service.”
