The weekend of 24-25 March marks a milestone in the £50m North Wales railway upgrade project, when a state of the art signalling system between Shotton and Colwyn Bay will come into use for the first time.
Passengers in Kent can look forward to more reliable train services to and through London as Network Rail today confirmed a major programme of work to upgrade the Sevenoaks tunnel and the railway which runs through it.
The Felixstowe branch line will remain closed to passenger services until early next week, following a collision between a car and freight train that also damaged the signalling equipment and level crossing.
- Total retail sales grew by 3.5% between October and December 2017 – ahead of 1.1%* market average
- Between April and December 2017 over 630m people have travelled through or visited Network Rail managed stations – spending more than £594m in its retail stores
Repair work is under way following a landslip that caused extensive damage to the railway line between Clacton on Sea and Colchester. The line is expected to be closed for at least the next two days while the work takes place.
Some train services will run in and out of Lime Street station for over four weeks of this summer’s upgrade works, being carried out between 2 June and 29 July, as every effort is made to keep passengers moving while the station is transformed.
This summer will see Great Western Railway (GWR) start to deliver new trains, more seats, and in time more frequent services across the South West.
Network Rail has issued a stark reminder to HGV drivers after a bridge strike in North Yorkshire resulted in the closure of both the rail and road networks.
