Network Rail has just begun the second phase of its scheme to lay double track along 20 miles of the Cotswold line between Oxford and Worcester.
The Cotswolds rely on rail. Be it for commuting to London, getting to work or school, or bringing tourists to the region, the railway is vital for the local economy.
At the moment the Cotswold line is a single track railway along much of its length, a legacy of cuts to the railways in the 1970s. Single track severely limits the number of trains that can run on the line and has an impact upon the reliability of train services between London, Worcester and beyond.
Please find Cotswold Line redoubling update autumn 2010, outlining our latest progress on the Cotswold redoubling project. I hope you find it interesting, and if you’d like to find out more about how this affects you or your business, don’t hesitate to get in touch.
