Have your say on railway proposals
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.
