Dutch Railways subsidiary Abellio has been awarded the contract for exploitation of a train service on the Greater Anglia route connecting Essex, Suffolk, Norfolk and Cambridgeshire.

Dutch Railways NS announced the news on Thursday. Abellio trains will be carrying passengers to Olympic Park when the Summer Olympics are being held in London. The contract has a 29-month duration. Abellio is taking over the Greater Anglia route from two other parties whose performance was considered sub-standard.

Abellio has pledged to improve stations and introduce new facilities and better information for travellers.
