Find out if our work will affect your street

25 October 2012

You can now easily find out if any of our planned work will affect roads in your area using an interactive website.


You can now find out if any of our planned work will affect roads in your area using an interactive website which also includes information from other utilities such as water and electricity companies.

The information is available on a website,, which shows works on a map in the user-friendly Google Maps format. You can also sign up to receive email alerts as new work is announced.

We are the first utility in England and Wales to feed road works data directly to the site allowing complete, national coverage regardless of road or works type.

Mark Farrow, our head of transparency, said: “Every day Network Rail is doing work to maintain and improve Britain’s rail network. Sometimes this work can cause road disruption. With the release of this information to residents and businesses will have early warning of how our plans could affect their plans.

“The information will also be valuable to those who work in traffic management and other utility companies, so everybody is better able to co-ordinate potentially disruptive road works.”

Shane O’Neill, chairman of ELGIN added: “Our mission is to open up data from organisations delivering a public service – whether public or private sector – and deliver that data in a way that is useful to people. Adding Network Rail to our interactive maps will further inform and empower the public.”

The release of this information is the latest milestone in our programme to release more information to the public. This includes train running data feeds and information about level crossings.
