NR lays new track at London Bridge

Network Rail laid more than 1km of new track in the London Bridge area over the August Bank Holiday, installed a new signal gantry near Waterloo East as well as several new sets of points, and laid more than 6km of power cables. 

Thameslink Programme Rail Systems Director Mark Somers said:  “I’d like to thank passengers and our neighbours for their patience this Bank Holiday as we have completed more work around London Bridge.

“Every weekend where we can do work on this scale is absolutely massive for us. Every single piece of track and every piece of equipment we put in position this weekend is crucial for Christmas, which will be the vital next stage for the project.”

    British Engineers at the best, given the right and tested equipment, and adequate time; it makes many of us , extremely proud. I wish the leaders in this field would get together, to enable the political establishment, to stop promising projects; where the core skills are not there, to complete the projects by the promised target dates.
