York track upgrade

Our £6 million project to upgrade the track in and around York station was completed in January 2023, helping to drive down delays and improve the track’s condition for many years to come.

Network Rail teams upgrade the tracks at York station

What we did? 

The renewal of nearly 3km of track will help to improve reliability, allowing passengers to get to where they need to be on time. Engineers also renewed nine sets of points, which allow trains to move from one section of track to another, as well as upgrading some vital signalling equipment. 

To ready the route for a cold winter, teams also improved specialist heaters on the track which play an important role in melting snow and ice so that trains can run reliably whatever the weather.
