Trimley rail link/Felixstowe branch lane enhancements, Ipswich

About this event

This branch line serves the Port of Felixstowe, which is the UK’s largest container port. The new loop will allow up to 10 additional trains per day in each direction to move goods to and from the port. With each freight train taking the equivalent of up to 76 lorries off the roads, the upgrade works will help to reduce congestion and pollution for the local community and the wider region.

VolkerFitzpatrick was the principal contractor on the project and the loop was brought into service in May 2019, on time and on budget.

In addition to the track re-doubling, works have included the upgrade of several level crossings and the installation of the Gun Lane bridleway bridge to improve safety for cyclists, riders and pedestrians.
