Passengers reminded of road and station closures during Albrighton railway bridge replacement

Published on : Wednesday, April 5, 2017

6The Grade II listed bridge at Albrighton station was originally built around 1880 and had part of its structure replaced over 80 years ago.Most of the bridge is approaching the end of its useful and safe life and will have to be renewed. The cast iron parapets will be retained and refurbished and overall the work will ensure that the bridge lasts a further 120 years.


The impact of the essential work will mean:
– Station Road has been closed since 20 March and will reopen on 29 April
– Albrighton station will be closed from 8 April to 23 April
– No trains will run between 15 and 17 April
– A full, signed diversionary route and a rail replacement service will be in operation


Dominic Mottram from Network Rail said “This work is the final piece of the jigsaw at Albrighton station. We recognise installing this new bridge will cause some disruption and would like to thank local residents for their continued patience. The bridge has reached the end of its working life and will be replaced as part of our Railway Upgrade Plan to deliver a better and more reliable railway.”


London Midland’s head of regional services, Steve Fisher said: “During the work we won’t be able to stop trains at Albrighton. Buses will run from outside the station to and from Cosford to connect with train services. There is also a free car park for passengers at Cosford during the works. The advice is to allow more time for your journey and check before you travel, particularly over the Easter weekend when more works means buses will run between Wolverhampton and Telford Central.”
