Greater Anglia warns of major disruption after line between Broxbourne and Stansted Airport blocked by fallen tree

Trains are not running through Bishop’s Stortford, Sawbridgeworth and Stansted this afternoon (Mon) due to a fallen tree on the overhead electric wires near Roydon.

Train operator Greater Anglia says services through these stations may be cancelled, delayed or revised, and major disruption is expected until the end of the day.

Services on the following routes will be unable to run beyond Broxbourne until repairs have been made – Liverpool Street and Stansted Airport; Liverpool Street and Cambridge/Cambridge North; Stratford and Bishop’s Stortford; Liverpool Street and Hertford East.

A statement from Greater Anglia just before 5pm said Network Rail engineers were on site and working to remove the tree and repair the damage. However, due to the damage caused, it may take longer than expected to restore the train service to normal.

The Met Office issued a yellow weather warning for Monday due to strong winds. The alert warned of some short-term loss of power and other services, adding that delays to road, rail and air transport were likely.

The River Stort was blocked on Monday when a tree fell near Twyford Lock. The authorities have been alerted.
