Engineering-works-London-Bridge-Easter-bank-holiday-1035x545Around 13,000 members of Network Rail‘s orange army were out in force to deliver more than 200 projects across Britain over the Easter bank holiday weekend (14-17 April). Teams worked round-the-clock on improvements including track renewals, infrastructure upgrades and bridge replacements.


Lots of different upgrade works were completed, which will help provide passengers with a better, more reliable railway. Just some of the projects delivered included;


further progress to the Ordsall Chord development in Manchester
track renewal on the West Coast main line between Preston and Carlisle
a junction upgrade at Mickleford, Leeds. Track alignment through Micklefield station as well as an extension on Platform 2 will enable the line to cope with longer trains in the future
new subway structure and underpass at Hackney Wick station. The station’s new subway and lifts will provide better access for passengers.
track renewals at Pudding Mill lane, in Newham, Greater London as part of Crossrail preparation works


bridge replacement works in Carmuirs in Scotland


harbour sea defence repairs took place in Poole. The defences have been worn away by tidal erosion.

Network Rail CEO Mark Carne, who was onsite Easter Monday at our upgrade works in Shenfield, took a moment to emphasis the benefits of our bank holiday works.
