Drop-In Event For Market Harborough Residents As Major Investment Into Railway Station continues

Published on : Tuesday, March 12, 2019

Network RailNetwork Rail is inviting residents in Market Harborough to a public drop-in event as work to improve the railway in the town progresses.

 

As part of the Midland Main Line Upgrade, the line through the station will be straightened to allow trains to travel at higher speeds. The project will also see numerous benefits to the station building itself, including the installation of a new footbridge to improve accessibility, longer platforms to cater for longer trains with more seats and increased car parking spaces.

 

A huge amount of work has already completed on the scheme including strengthening three road bridges in the town and the construction of a new car park. A large part of the work to install the new footbridge at the station has also taken place.

 

The project will mean a six day rail closure to the line through Market Harborough from Tuesday 28 May and Sunday 2 June (inclusive). Network Rail is doing as much work as possible to keep disruption to a minimum and engineers have already laid nearly 3km of track.

 

Network Rail has previously held information events for residents in the town and is inviting those who wish to keep up to date with the scheme to another event at Market Harborough Market on Saturday 30 March between 09:00 and 17:00.

 

Workers from Network Rail will be on hand to answer any questions residents may have.
