The leak was discovered at about 3am this morning (16 August) and following discussions with emergency services and National Grid, electricity was switched off to limit the risk of igniting the leaked gas. National Grid has fixed the leak and the line reopened at 3pm.
Richard Schofield, Network Rail’s route managing director for Anglia, said: “We were alerted to a gas leak near the railway at Brimsdown station in Enfield in the early hours of this morning and were asked by emergency services to close the railway between Cheshunt and Tottenham Hale. National Grid fixed the leak this afternoon and the line reopened at 3pm. There will be some residual delays while train services get back to normal. I’d like to thank passengers whose journeys were disrupted for their patience.”
During the incident, Network Rail diverted train services in and out of Liverpool Street via Seven Sisters.
The incident affected train services from London Liverpool Street to Stansted Airport, Hertford East, Cambridge and Kings Lynn.
