What the work involves 

Teams will be completing work on: 

  • Rails – the lengths of steel and are welded together. 
  • Sleepers – the wooden or concrete blocks that support the rails. 
  • Ballast – the stones beneath the track that give support. 


Our work will make journeys more reliable and allow trains on this important route into London Waterloo to continue travelling at full line speed.
