Have your say on rail­way pro­pos­als


The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - News -

Res­i­dentswill­be­able­to­have their say on a new ‘dive un­der’ as part of rail­way up­grade plans in Wer­ring­ton.

The project near Wer­ring­ton will see a new sec­tion of track built to ‘dive un­der’ the East Coast Main Line and con­nect with the Great North­ern Great Eastern Line, which once com­plete will help ease con­ges­tion and cre­ate ca­pac­ity for more train ser­vices to run on the East Coast Main line to and from Lon­don King’s Cross in the fu­ture.

In 2014, the pub­lic were asked whether they would pre­fer for the new junc­tion to‘di­ve­un­der’or‘fly­over’the East Coast Main Line, with 69 per­cent of re­spon­dents say­ing they pre­ferred the ‘dive un­der’ op­tion.

There will be three pub­lic events to al­low res­i­dents to see the plans, and have their say.

The ses­sions will take place on Septem­ber 10 at William Law School be­tween 10.30am - 2.30pm; Septem­ber 15 at The Barn Youth Cen­tre, Hodg­son Av­enue, be­tween 2.30pm and 6.30pm and Septem­ber 16 at the Wer­ring­ton Vil­lage Cen­tre, be­tween 2pm and 5pm.

The feed­back pe­riod for any com­ments re­lat­ing to the Wer­ring­ton Grade Sep­a­ra­tion project is open from Septem­ber7un­til Oc­to­ber 3.
