Follow-up railway resilience work at Athelney level crossing

As you know, unfortunately we couldn’t install the new bridge here recently, but we did complete the renewal of the railway track and its supporting components. We’ll soon be returning to follow up on this work, which is an essential part of the process and ensures the safety and resilience of the renewed rail.

We’ll use special on-rail vehicles to compact, test and align the new track now it’s had time to settle. The nature of this work and the equipment needed will generate some noise at times and we want to apologise in advance if we disturb you. We’ll work hard to keep any unnecessary noise to a minimum. If you’re interested in what this kind of work involves, please visit www.networkrail.co.uk/running-the-railway/looking-after-the-railway.

We’ll be working overnight, while trains aren’t running, and will have teams on-site each night between 10 pm and 6 am, from Monday 17 until the morning of Friday 21 May. We’ll need to close the road again while we work, and unfortunately can’t provide safe access across until the work is finished, at 8 am on Friday 21 May. We want to apologise for any inconvenience this further temporary closure may cause.

Thank you again for your patience while we complete this important work. If you have any questions or concerns, you can call us any time on 03457 11 41 41, or visit www.networkrail.co.uk/contactus for more options.
