Network Rail Easter Upgrades Completed On Schedule
Posted on: 07/04/2015

It has been confirmed that the upgrade works taking place over the Easter period on the Network rail lines have been completed on time.

The £100m project saw engineers working around the clock over the Easter bank holiday, working on projects such as the replacement of the bridge south of Watford Junction, on-going work at London Bridge and new freight lines installed under the Reading viaduct.

Network Rail chief executive Mark Carne said: “The improvements made this weekend are a vital part of our £38bn investment programme which will deliver a better railway in the weeks, months and years ahead.”

Concern was sparked when the Easter upgrades were announced, following the over-running that occurred over the Christmas period. Many trains were delayed and a substantial amounts of services experienced delays to and from the main stations in London including Paddington and King’s Cross.

These developments are all part of the £6.5bn Thameslink programme which will offer significant infrastructure improvements to those living in, and commuting to the city.
