A digest of the main changes on Network Rail, London Underground and Northern Ireland Railways infrastructure during March 2020, compiled by Martyn Brailsford of the Branch Line Society (www.branchline.uk).
March saw a downturn in reportable work, partially due to the coronavirus pandemic. However, one significant project that has moved forward is the new platform and track at Stevenage.
Newmans (44M 25ch), Standford’s Farm (39M 27ch) and Tyle Hall (39M 58ch) User Worked Crossings (UWC) have all been upgraded with miniature Red/Green lights to become Overlay Miniature Stop Light (OMSL) crossings. Between Beccles and Lowestoft (2:8) Wrights User Worked Crossing (UWC) at 113M 57ch has been upgraded with miniature Red/Green lights to become an Overlay Miniature Stop Light (OMSL) crossing.
