Railway Reopens After Successful Easter Upgrades Are Completed On Time

Published on : Wednesday, April 19, 2017

Network RailThe railway between London and Scotland via the West Midlands and north west has reopened after a number of upgrade projects over Easter were successfully completed on time.


Network Rail‘s orange army worked round-the-clock over the Easter weekend on improvements including track renewals, infrastructure upgrades and bridge replacements.


Upgrades which will help provide passengers with a better, more reliable railway included:
– Further progress to the Ordsall Chord development in Manchester
– Track renewal on the West Coast main line, through Northchurch Tunnel near Berkhamsted
– Significant progress to replace a railway bridge in Albrighton (still closed as part of an extended planned closure)
– Embankment improvements in Watford
– Removing an old ‘cattle creep’ – which historically allowed cows to walk under the railway – between Buxton and Stockport
– Track renewal on the West Coast main line between Preston and Carlisle



Martin Frobisher, route managing director at Network Rail, said: “This work was part of our ongoing Railway Upgrade Plan which will provide customers with a better railway. There is never a good time to carry out work that affects services but we worked closely with the train operators for it to cause the least amount of disruption. I would like to thank passengers for their understanding while we completed these vital upgrades.”
