Felixstowe – Rail Scheme Sanctioned

by | Oct 20, 2017

A new £60m scheme to improve rail links from the Port of Felixstowe has been given the green light by UK Transport Minister – Chris Grayling.

The multi-million pound scheme will dual part of the Felixstowe-Ipswich branch line to increase its rail freight cargo capacity by nearly 30% and should be completed by the end of 2019.

The loop, just under a mile in length, will allow two freight trains to pass each other. This will enable the number of trains running from Britain’s busiest container terminal to rise from 33 to 45 per day, and is expected to take nearly 22,000 trucks off the A14 road every year.
