Network Rail replaces track at Waterloo for a more reliable railway

Published on : Tuesday, March 28, 2017

2Network Rail’s orange army worked around the clock over three weekends in March to replace large sections of the switches and crossings – which allow trains to move between tracks and to access the correct platforms – at Waterloo. Some of the switches and crossings replaced during the work will ensure that trains can access the former International Terminal, which Network Rail is currently rebuilding to provide an extra five platforms at Waterloo.

 

Stuart Kistruck, director of route asset management at Network Rail, said: “As one of the most heavily used sections of railway in Britain, it is essential that we carry out these upgrades as part of our Railway Upgrade Plan, to provide passengers with a reliable service.

 

“At the same time, we’re also preparing the track to accommodate more trains as part of our £800 million upgrade, and the work this month is a vital part of that. I’d like to thank passengers for their patience while we’ve carried out our work.”
