Passengers invited to find out more as work continues at Kettering station

Region & Route:
London North Eastern & East Midlands

Network Rail is inviting passengers and residents in Kettering to find out more about work to improve the station.

Network Rail has been working since October to extend platforms 1-4 to enable newer and longer trains with more seats to call there. Work is also taking place to trim back platform canopies to accommodate overhead line equipment. This is vital to allow the route between London and Kettering and Corby via Bedford to be electrified as part of the Midland Main Line Upgrade.

The work will see the canopies refurbished and Network Rail engineers will be reinstating some lost architectural details based on historic drawings of the station. Network Rail is working closely with stakeholders in the area on this work.

Network Rail is holding a public information event on Tuesday, 26 November for those wishing to find out more about the project. This will take place at Kettering station between 15:00 and 18:00. Workers from Network Rail will be on hand to answer any questions which attendees have.

Anyone who cannot make the event but wishes to find out more, should call the Network Rail National Helpline on 03457 11 41 41 or visit the Network Rail website.

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.
