We do maintenance and upgrade work every night of the year. The few hours access to the track that our teams get is not enough to complete larger scale work such as:
We usually have to close a section of the track for 24 hours or more to carry out this work. Much of this is scheduled for public holidays because the railway is relatively quiet for a few days and the inevitable disruption affects fewer people.
The improvements that we are making allow more trains to run, at higher speeds and also improves the reliability of the rail network, reducing delays.
