Spring Clean On Track – Network Rail Completes Tidy Up of Railway in Sheffield

Published on : Saturday, March 30, 2019

Network RailNetwork Rail has successfully completed a vital project to clean up fly-tipping on the railway in Sheffield.

 

On Friday, 22 March a team from Network Rail worked to remove rubbish which had been illegally dumped on the line near Meadowhall station and was an eyesore for passengers travelling along the route.

 

The litter, which had been left to rot, not only caused a blot on the landscape but also had the potential to interfere with the running of the railway and cause delays for passengers. The project saw a huge amount of litter cleared, including traffic cones, road signs, plastic bottles and bags full of rubbish. Workers also installed new fencing to prevent future incidents.

 

The work was funded by a £1million package which Network Rail announced last week. The money will be used to tidy up the railways in England, Scotland and Wales.

 

Richard Owens, Head of Maintenance Delivery for Network Rail, said: “We are delighted that this important project is now complete. This work has removed an eyesore and will make the area much more pleasant for passengers who travel on this stretch of the railway.

 

“We have installed new fencing to try and prevent future incidents of fly-tipping but we would like to remind everyone that the railway is not a dumping ground for unwanted items and that fly-tipping is illegal.”
