The Up Relief line will also be under blockade for renewal of signalling equipment at Stapleton Road and Lawrence Hill.

Dave

Good thing that is Four Track now.

Indeed. What a relief.

It would have been a downer to block the whole line.

Network Rail have tweeted some images of work in progress at Portway Park and Ride Station




These concrete blocks, together with the piles laid on side, hold back the ballast:

It does look like a lot, doesn't it, even given the foreshortening? It's a 5-car platform, and by my count there's 15 columns - but they won't all be for lighting, there's CCTV (Closed Circuit Tele Vision) and CIS (Customer Information System) to consider. The lighting design is all laid out in planning app 22/02328/COND on the Bristol City Council planning portal.

Aren’t they going to have to pointlessly rearrange the tactiles a few times yet?  Or is that just Reading Green Park…  Huh
