Residents living near to the railway in the villages of Brandon, Wolston, Church Lawford and Long Lawford are this week invited to attend local drop-in sessions to find out more about upcoming vegetation work in the area.
Last year across Britain around 1,000 trains collided with fallen trees or large branches – a number Network Rail is keen to reduce. Each year there are increased instances of trees and branches blocking or closing lines, disrupting passengers’ journeys.
Vegetation management work will take place along an 8 mile section of route between Willenhall Lane and Rugby from 24 April.
Residents are invited to attend either of two public information events to find out more about the activity, meet the project team and understand how the work might affect them.
Details of the events:
Stephen Lowe, Senior Arborist at Network Rail said: “Vegetation management is an essential part of railway maintenance and is crucial to keeping both trains and passengers safe on the railway network.
“We encourage those living near the railway to come along and understand the work we are doing and how it may affect them. Our project team will be on hand to answer any questions and address any concerns they may have.”
