Network Rail issues Update on Irthlingborough Road Bridge in Wellingborough

Published on : Thursday, April 18, 2019

Network RailNetwork Rail has today (Wednesday, 17 April) issued an update about plans to reconstruct Irthlingborough Road bridge in Wellingborough.


Rob McIntosh, Route Managing Director for Network Rail, said: “Network Rail has recently completed a review of the programme for work to Irthlingborough Road bridge.


“Following this review and discussions with Northamptonshire County Council, Network Rail has decided that a like-for-like structure will be reconstructed to replace the one which was demolished in late 2018.


“This bridge will be built in the same location, but will be rebuilt at a raised height to allow for the safe passage of high-voltage overhead line equipment which needs to be installed to allow the railway from Bedford to Kettering and Corby to be electrified.


“We are currently working on a programme for this project and work to reconstruct the bridge will begin as soon as possible.


“Whilst we remain supportive of Route 2, as part of the Stanton Cross development, it is now clear that its completion will take longer than anticipated and cause a period of prolonged inconvenience for the community.


“We would like to thank residents and businesses for their feedback and apologise for the disruption caused by this work.”
