We will be working throughout 2021 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.
