Carpenders Park residents invited to learn more about February railway vegetation

networkrail-placeholderNetwork Rail is inviting Carpenders Park and Bushey residents to an information event on forthcoming railway vegetation works.The vegetation management work, scheduled for next month between Carpenders Park and Bushey, is required to keep train passengers and staff safe.

 

Last year around 1,000 trains collided with fallen trees or large branches – a number Network Rail is eager to reduce.Each year there are many more instances of trees and branches blocking or closing lines, disrupting train passengers’ journeys.

 

Cutting foliage back a safe distance from the tracks enables train drivers to clearly see signals – the traffic lights of the railway – and to spot potential hazards as soon as possible.The drop-in event will take place at Carpenders Park Community Hall, on Station Approach, from 4pm to 7pm on Monday, 25 January 2016.

 

Network Rail staff will be on hand to explain why these works are so important for railway safety and how they will tackle the challenge in this area.A spokesperson for Network Rail said: “We encourage our lineside neighbours to come along to understand the work we are doing and any impact it will have on them.

 

“Our project team will be there to answer any questions from residents and address any concerns they may have.“Vegetation management is an essential part of railway maintenance and this work is crucial to keeping both trains and passengers safe on the network.”
