378

VolkerRail has produced a video showing its renewals and realignment works at Bloxwich level crossing which have increased the line speed through the area.

The works in Bloxwich were delivered over the course of three consecutive weekends.

Network Rail has said the renewal and realignment of the track will allow it to raise the speed limit from 25 mph to 50 mph.

As well as improving the line speed, the works will see the level crossing closed for good.

Graham Shaw, VolkerRail senior project manager, said: “Cannock has been a challenging project from its inception, however, the team in collaboration with Network Rail and other major stakeholders are working extremely hard to ensure the ORR milestone of May 2018 is met.”
