Thousands of passengers are set for a week of rail replacement bus services as major works take place in Norfolk.

Starting from today, all Greater Anglia trains between Norwich and Great Yarmouth, and Norwich and Lowestoft, will be replaced by buses.

The disruption will last all week as track renewal, bridge renewal and resignalling work takes place on the lines.

The first bus to Great Yarmouth will leave Norwich at 5.06am each day, arriving in the coastal town at 6.05am, while the last leaves the city at 11pm and arrives at 11.55pm.

Coming the other way, the first bus leaves Yarmouth at 5.10am and is scheduled to arrive in Norwich exactly one hour later.
