Network Rail Limited Announces New Series of Projects
Jul 9 13
Network Rail Limited has announced a series of projects, worth nearly GBP 40 million, aimed at improving the reliability of the infrastructure and punctuality of train services on Britain's mixed-use railway line. The projects, many of which are already underway, have been specifically targeted to improve performance on the West Coast Main Line and range from overhead line improvements to new security fencing to reduce delays caused by trespass and vandalism. To complement this work, Network Rail is changing the way it stores and analyses overhead line condition data which is captured by two specially adapted Pendolino trains. This change will enable the data to be analyzed and essential maintenance work to be completed much more quickly. Around GBP 10 million will be invested to construct more than 11 miles of new fencing along the railway between London and Rugby at key locations, reducing the risk of incursions from people or livestock onto the track. Network Rail is also working with London Midland and Samaritans to put in place suicide prevention measures at London Midland stations between Watford and Milton Keynes. Further north, a major project over 18 miles of railway near Wigan will see new junctions and track installed over nine days in July 2013. In the longer term, similar infrastructure improvements in the Watford area will be getting underway in 2014.

Mar 25 13
Network Rail and GT Railway Maintenance Ltd. (trading as Carillion Rail) were fined a total of £318,125 and ordered to pay costs of £180,000 following a prosecution brought by the Office of Rail Regulation (ORR) for breaches of health and safety law which led to the death of Mr. Liam Robinson, a GT Railway Maintenance employee, in Stafford in 2003. On 30 September 2003, employees of GT Railway Maintenance were carrying out routine maintenance on a rail engineering machine owned by Network Rail when an electrical fault caused part of the machine to move whilst one of the workers, Mr. Robinson, was working inside it. He was trapped by the moving parts and subsequently died due to the injuries sustained.
