Resignalling work during the late May bank holiday

We’re carrying out resignalling work during the late May bank holiday – passengers are reminded to check journey plans before travelling.

We’re replacing trackside signalling equipment with modern, in-cab computer displays and control centre systems, which means the future of railway signalling belongs inside the train, bringing all information from one of 12 regional operating centres around Britain to the driver, instantly.

Across Britain, we’re carrying out the complex electrical work needed to ‘recontrol’ the signals, which involves moving control of the signals from the side of the track to new, state-of-the-art operating centres.

  • We will be carrying out signalling work on the Halton Curve near Liverpool from Saturday 26 May to Monday 28 May. The Halton Curve is the 1.5 miles of track that links the Chester/Warrington line and the Liverpool/Crewe line at Frodsham Junction. This will enable a new hourly service.
  • There will also be resignalling in the Birmingham area  as part of the wider West Midlands resignalling project.
  • In Scotland, signalling installation will take place in the Rutherglen and Polmadie area.
