I have no problem with railway works being done over school holidays - without school runs in the morning, when better to make use of replacement buses?

However, I’m not sure Network Rail did all of their homework when timing this set of works, for just one of the nine days.

Sunday is the East Anglian Derby, the biggest game of the season for Norwich City fans. There will be lots of Norwich City fans from Yarmouth travelling to Carrow Road on Sunday morning, myself included.

Surely they could have finished their works on Saturday or put them on hold for the Derby?
