The upgrade will see signalling on the line between Ferriby, Gilberdyke and Saltmarshe modernised, with old signalling technology ‘recontrolled’ from local lineside signal boxes to the state-of-the-art Rail Operating Centre in York.
The project will deliver step-free access across the station as part of the Access for All scheme – which is designed to improve access within stations for people with impaired mobility or those travelling with luggage, children or cycles.
Every day more than a thousand railway workers inspect the railway trucks in winter.
The investment will make the railway bigger and better to carry the ever-increasing number of people who are travelling by train across the north of England.
Motorists and train passengers in south west London are being advised to allow more time for their journeys and to check before travelling as Network Rail continues work on a major railway signalling upgrade in Sutton and Mitcham areas this weekend.
Passengers at three stations in South East London are set to benefit from accessibility improvements, making access between the station entrances and platforms much easier for people with disabilities and reduced mobility, as well as those with children, heavy luggage or shopping.
