Greater Anglia add train service for Peterborough match

Greater Anglia have added an extra train service between Ipswich & Peterborough, both inboud & outbound, ahead of this weekend’s match at the Weston Homes Stadium.

Greater Anglia is advising passengers that there are likely to be large queues and very busy trains, particularly on the Ipswich to Peterborough line, because of the expected numbers of people. Extra staff will be on hand to help.

Trains will run with more carriages between Ipswich and Peterborough where possible, but services are still very likely to be full.

Supporters are advised to buy tickets in advance online or via the Greater Anglia app to reduce their waiting times at the station.

James Steward, Greater Anglia’s Area Customer Service Manager, said: “Trains and stations are expected to be very busy on Saturday 17 August as people make their way to and from these popular events. People should buy their tickets in advance where possible and allow more time for their journeys.

“We are running longer trains where possible and practical, but passengers may wish to consider alternative arrangements.”

Everyone is encouraged to check before they travel either via the Greater Anglia app, website or Twitter.

There will now be an additional service that goes direct from Ipswich to Peterborough at 10.24am & a return service that departs Peterborough after the game at 5.34pm

Both additional services will have three carriages and cannot be extended further.
