Network Rail invites Enfield residents to find out more about vegetation management on railway

Region & Route:
London North Eastern & East Midlands

Network Rail is holding three public information events for residents in Enfield to find out more about work to manage vegetation in the area.  

Network Rail will begin work to manage trees and vegetation which grows along the railway later this month. This work is vital in keeping trains running reliably and safely as fallen trees, leaves on the line and overgrown vegetation can impact on the ability to run trains and cause delays for passengers. Network Rail is constantly balancing the needs of the environment and those who live by the railway with the needs and safety of the 4.6million people who use and rely on the railway every day.

Residents wishing to find out more about the work can attend one of three drop in events. These will take place on:

  • Tuesday, 19 November at St Michael & All Angels Parish Church, Gordon Hill between 16:00 and 20:00
  • Wednesday, 20 November at St Peters Church, Vera Avenue, Grange Park between 16:00 and 20:00
  • Friday, 22 November at Palmers Green Library, Broomfield Lane between 13:00 and 17:00

Workers from Network Rail will be on hand to answer any questions which residents may have. Anyone who can’t make an event, but wishes to find out more, should call the Network Rail National Helpline on 03457 11 41 41.
