West Coast Main Line Spring Railway Improvement Plan Revealed

Published on : Thursday, January 23, 2020

Network RailNetwork Rail today revealed its schedule of vital West Coast main line engineering upgrades this spring, to make the railway more reliable and improve future journeys.

 

 

To stay on the move, train passengers are advised to plan journeys in advance and to check before travelling.

 

 

The key weekends of Railway Upgrade Plan work, all agreed with train companies, are as follows:

 

 

 

Tim Shoveller, managing director for Network Rail’s North West and Central region, said: “There’s never a perfect time to close parts of the railway to make improvements, but bank holidays and weekends are the quietest times when the fewest people use the railway. We work closely with our industry colleagues to get as much work done as possible during the closures and minimise its impact on people’s journeys. Network Rail has also reorganised our Railway Upgrade Plan improvements to keep trains running for this year’s very special VE Day.”

 

 

Susie Homan, director for planning, engineering and operations at the Rail Delivery Group, representing the rail industry, said: “Although there is a never a good time for improvement work, it’s essential to make journeys more punctual, maintain a safe railway and support our plans to run 11,300 more services by the mid-2020s. We are asking passengers to check before they travel to ensure they can still have a smooth journey.”
