Last week the government announced that Abellio Greater Anglia had been rewarded the contract for the Eastern line. Abellio have pledged to invest £1.4 billion over the next nine years and will deliver faster, more frequent journeys.

Abellio will provide 1,040 new carriages, free Wi-Fi for all passengers and by 2021 there will be 32,000 more seats arriving at Liverpool Street in the morning peak.

This is fantastic news for Ipswich. It lays the foundation for the future success of our town. The investment in rolling stock serves Ipswich both from London but also importantly, from Cambridge and the Midlands.

Many people have worked hard for this news but without the coordinated efforts across our three counties we would not have achieved this absolutely magnificent result. This is a very important day in the history of investment in our town, our county and our region.
