Project To Keep Newcastle’s Railways Running Reliably Completes For Another Year

Published on : Friday, December 28, 2018

Network RailA team of Network Rail workers have successfully completed a major project to replace wooden beams within the Grade II listed King Edward Bridge in Newcastle.

 

The project began on Christmas Eve and completed before the first service this morning (Thursday, 27 December).

 

This is the eighth year of a 13 year programme to replace all of the beams to maintain reliability on this vital piece of railway, making sure that trains can continue to run reliably and safely and get passengers where they need to be.

 

 

Over the festive period, a 25,000-strong workforce work around the clock to keep the railway open and deliver more than 330 projects as part of a £148m investment across Britain over the Christmas and New Year holiday period.

 

The programme of work is part of Network Rail’s five-year railway upgrade plan – a multi-billion-pound investment in the rail network which will improve passenger journeys in the months and years ahead.
