Good news for Northern Rail customers after Armathwaite storm damage repaired

Published on : Tuesday, December 22, 2015

Network RailTrain passengers were travelling today on near normal services between Culgaith and Carlisle after Network Rail’s orange army completed storm damage repairs.

 

The southbound railway line was closed as a safety precaution after storms caused part of the railway embankment to give way on 15 December at Armathwaite, Cumbria. Since then trains have had to use just one line rather than two.

 

The orange army worked tirelessly to rebuild and stabilise the embankment. Just before 9am today the line was reopened to trains, which will pass through Armathwaite at temporarily reduced speeds while Network Rail experts continue to monitor the repaired area.

 

Terry Strickland, area director for Network Rail, said: “We’re really pleased to get this line reopened for Northern Rail customers – another step towards getting things back to normal again.”

 

Richard Allan, commercial director at Northern Rail, said: “This is good news for Northern customers as we continue our work with Network Rail to recover services following the landslips.”
