Improving the quality of Market Harborough's rail service
Network Rail have released a time-lapse video of the 2019 line upgrade work at Market Harborough, showing the main stages of the project from installation of the footbridge back in February 2019 to the first train on 3rd June. It can be seen at https://vimeo.com/insideoutgrp/mmluprademarketharboroughjune2019.
The temporary speed restrictions through the station have now been removed, allowing trains not stopping to pass through at speed.
This was the latest in a series of drop-in sessions at the station, where people could find out more about the station rebuild scheme. Representatives from Network Rail, EMT and contractors Amey were on hand to answer questions. Though the planned scheme is now well under way, decisions remain to be made about the additional lift, toilets and platform canopies we seek.
