Rail Work Closes Rd
A big job this weekend will be to destress the track between Morningside and Kingsland Stations. Teams continue with the installation of signalling pits, cables and ducting. Old rails and sleepers were removed this morning. Tomorrow, the crew will move a tamper through the area to straighten and balance the tracks. A major sleeper lay is planned for the period between November 10 and 20.
Morningside Drive is one of the key level crossings named years ago as going to create issues when very frequent electric trains pass through.
There is no sign of any moves to create a bridge for cars which is what will be needed.
