Ellie Burrows is new Anglia route director at Network Rail


Ellie Burrows, the former train services director at Southeastern, has taken up her new post as Network Rail’s route director for Anglia.

One of four new routes that make up Network Rail’s Eastern region, Anglia covers Norfolk, Suffolk, Essex and parts of Cambridgeshire, Hertfordshire and Greater London.

With over 20 years’ experience in the UK rail industry, Ellie will oversee Network Rail’s programme to invest £2.2 billion between 2019 and 2024 in running, maintaining and improving Anglia’s railway for passengers and freight users. Major infrastructure projects over the next few years include renewing the signalling system at Cambridge, renewing and refurbishing a quarter of the track network, increasing capacity between Cambridge and Kings Lynn, replacing Victorian signalling with 21st century technology between Norwich, Yarmouth and Lowestoft, and replacing overhead lines on the Southend Victoria route.

Rob McIntosh, Network Rail.

Network Rail’s managing director for the Eastern region, Rob McIntosh, said: “Ellie brings an enormous wealth of rail industry experience and is exactly the right person to drive the route forward and deliver an exceptional railway for the economy and communities we serve.

“She reinforces a talented leadership team in this region who are committed to putting passengers and freight users at the heart of everything we do.”
