3359e2362c574bc88b83c002bf6217cbThe Victorian tunnel, which has served the town for more than 160 years, was strengthened using local Stamford Stone to improve the reliability of the bridge as part of Network Rail’s Railway Upgrade Plan.

 

The tunnel, which runs beneath Barnack Road in the centre of the town, was built between 1846 and 1848, to carry trains on the Syston to Peterborough route. The project began in September last year and was originally due to be finished in February, but engineers were able to complete it earlier this month meaning passengers get the benefit of a more modern, reliable railway even sooner.

 

Rob McIntosh, route managing director for Network Rail said: “I’m delighted the rebuilding work has been completed ahead of schedule. Stamford Tunnel is an important part of the railway between Syston and Peterborough and the work that has been done will help maintain the reliability of train services for passengers.”
