Title: Overnight engineering works - various dates Jan, Feb, March 2019
Post by: grahame on January 11, 2019, 02:45:55 pm
I understand that Network Rail will be closing the TransWilts overnight ...
* 21st to 24th January 2019
* 9th to 11th February
* 4th to 7th March
For maintenance works.

No disruption to passenger train services (which finish silly-early in the evening) but a warning of noise to neighbours. The work is between WEY 102M32 and WEY 104M42 which according to my calculations is somewhere behind Holt - between Broughton Gifford and the River Avon at Staverton - so most of the neighbours will be cows and sheep and fields of cereal crops and maize.

Presumably "21st to 24th" means "(21st to 24th) to (22nd to 25th)" January, the full four-night weekday closure, and likewise for 4th to 7th March. However, 9th to 11th February is a weekend, and is listed in the latest EAS as:

PLTR is Plain Line Track Renewals, not PLaTfoRm 2 construction works sadly.  :D
