We will be working throughout 2020 to renew and repair the railway tracks across the Western route.

We are going to replace the old, worn railway track by lifting it up, removing it, laying a new stone base and relaying new track. We are aware that we are working close to your home and we work hard to minimise the disruption. The work will involve heavy track machinery, so we apologise in advance for any disturbance we create.

We are completing this work to bring passengers more reliable, faster better rail services.

Safety is our number one priority, so we need to carry out a lot of our work during the night when the railway is closed to trains.

Please be aware the below times may change.
