New video shows train services resuming at Derby railway station

Region & Route:
London North Eastern & East Midlands
Eastern

Network Rail has released time-lapse footage showing the latest stage of the Derby Resignalling project as the majority of train services return to the station.

 

The latest phase of the £200million investment sees the return of all CrossCountry services, as well as East Midlands Trains services to and from Nottingham and Crewe. The video also shows 10,000 tonnes of material removed from the platforms and sees them reconstructed in a new, straighter formation to allow the new track to be laid. 

A bus replacement service remains in operation between Derby and Matlock, as well as a temporary train timetable for journeys between Derby and Chesterfield and Derby and London. Services between Birmingham and the North East/ Scotland will have extended journey times and passenger are advised to check before they travel via derby2018.co.uk

About Network Rail

We own, operate and develop Britain's railway infrastructure; that's 20,000 miles of track, 30,000 bridges, tunnels and viaducts and the thousands of signals, level crossings and stations. We run 20 of the UK's largest stations while all the others, over 2,500, are run by the country's train operating companies.

Every day, there are more than 4.8 million journeys made in the UK and over 600 freight trains run on the network. People depend on Britain's railway for their daily commute, to visit friends and loved ones and to get them home safe every day. Our role is to deliver a safe and reliable railway, so we carefully manage and deliver thousands of projects every year that form part of the multi-billion pound Railway Upgrade Plan, to grow and expand the nation's railway network to respond to the tremendous growth and demand the railway has experienced - a doubling of passenger journeys over the past 20 years.
