Rail (UK) - - News -

Net­work Rail is up­grad­ing the Mid­land Main Line as part of its Mar­ket Har­bor­ough Line Speed Im­prove­ment Project.

Work in­cludes changes to the track bed to im­prove train speed, and straight­en­ing the track. NR is also strength­en­ing Rock­ing­ham Road bridge in Mar­ket Har­bor­ough, so that it can carry more bal­last to sup­port the op­er­a­tion of faster trains.

NR is also work­ing on Odell Viaduct, rais­ing the struc­ture to al­low for the safe clear­ance of over­head line equip­ment in an­tic­i­pa­tion of elec­tri­fi­ca­tion of the line be­tween Lon­don to Ket­ter­ing and Corby via Bed­ford.
