Network Rail renews important sections of track at Waterloo to improve reliability

Published on : Thursday, March 9, 2017

4Network Rail has completed an important weekend of improvements at Waterloo this weekend replacing vital sections of track to make the railway more resilient and more reliable as part of the enormous £800 million Waterloo & South West Upgrade.

 

Engineers worked around the clock to replace the switches and crossings, which allow trains to move between tracks, in one of Britain’s busiest sections of railway. This weekend’s £300,000 investment by Network Rail is just one part of a scheme to replace large sections of the switches and crossings at the country’s busiest station and will improve the reliability of the railway for passengers.

 

Becky Lumlock, route managing director at Network Rail, said: “The improvements we have made this weekend are all part of our Railway Upgrade Plan to make the railway in and out of Waterloo more reliable for the growing number of passengers that use it.

 

“I’d like to thank passengers for their patience while we carried out our improvements this weekend, and also ask that everyone checks before travelling while we continue our improvement works later this month.”
