Engineering works on an east London trainline are expected to cause disruption over the weekend.

Rail operator c2c has announced that the works between central London and Barking will affect trains today and tomorrow (July 6 and 7).

Its services, which usually start and end at Fenchurch Street, will be diverted to and from London Liverpool Street.

The diversion means that trains will call at Stratford, but not stop at Limehouse or West Ham.

A shuttle train will be running between Upminster and Grays via Ockendon.

Passengers with a valid ticket can use Jubilee line services between Stratford and West Ham.

DLR services can also be used between Tower Gateway, Limehouse, Stratford and West Ham.

The disruption is the last of six consecutive weekends of work on the line.

Works have included inspection of bridges, culverts, and structures between Fenchurch Street, East Ham, and Barking.

Old rails at Fenchurch Street station have also been replaced, and general track maintenance has been carried out around West Ham station.

Teams have also tackled potential drainage issues by inspecting sewers around West Ham, and have cleared overgrown vegetation at various locations.

This clearance reduces the risk of falling trees or branches and obstructing signals, according to Network Rail.
