Macclesfield’s £45 million resignalling to start

Work is to start this month on a project to replace 56 signals on the West Coast Main Line between Prestbury, Macclesfield and Congleton. 

Part of a wider multi-billion-pound scheme dubbed the ‘Great North Rail Project’, the £45 million resignalling project will take 17 months and will also involve the upgrade of cabling and power supplies.

Gus Dunster, Avanti West Coast executive director of systems and safety, said his organisation was “excited” at the resignalling as part of the GNRP.

“Once complete, the works will help to make journeys on the West Coast Main Line more reliable for many years to come,” he said.
