new trains 2019

Network Rail is due to start work in Chelford. This work is part of the upgrade plans to deliver a better railway for Britain and will involve the installation of a new uninterruptible power supplies (that provide emergency power should the mains power fail) at Chelford Station.

The work will take place from 30 May 2021 until 31 August 2021

Much of the work will take place during the daytime hours to reduce any disturbance however, there will be times when Network Rail will need to work at night (between 23:30 and 08:30) to keep staff and passengers safe. This night time work will take place on the following dates:

Saturday 05 June 2021 to Sunday 06 June 2021

Saturday 19 June 2021 to Sunday 20 June 2021

Saturday 26 June 2021 to Sunday 27 June 2021

During the night time work, hand tools will be used to limit the disturbance to lineside neighbours however, there will be a generator on site to provide power and this may create some noise. The generator is required to run 24 hours a day while the work takes place. On track machinery will also be required to deliver materials over some weekend shifts.

When staff are on site, there will be a number of non-marked vehicles that are connected to the project however, these will all display a Network Rail sign on the windscreen.

Because of the machinery that is used, some noise is to be expected however, the teams will do all they can to keep this to a minimum where possible.

Network Rail thank residents for their patience and understanding while this work takes place, however, if you have any queries there is a 24 hour helpline available on 03457 11 41 41.
