Norwich City fans heading to Wembley on Monday to watch the play-off final against Middlesbrough will benefit from extra trains, but services will stop before Liverpool Street.

Rail operator Abellio Greater Anglia said on Monday that because of Network Rail planned improvement works taking place on Sunday and Bank Holiday Monday all services to and from London will terminate and start from Stratford station and not Liverpool Street.

For travel to the match, scheduled services from Norwich to Stratford will depart at: 06.00, 07.00, 07.20, 08.00, 08.20, 09.00, 09.20, 10.00, 10.20, 11.00 and 11.20.

Returning from the match, trains will depart Stratford for Norwich at: 18.12, 18.42, 19.12, 19.42, 20.12, 20.42 and 21.42.

Later services depart at: 22.42 and 23.47 with a change at Colchester.

If the strikes go ahead, there will be severe disruption to services on Monday and Tuesday, so customers are strongly advised to check before travel.
