Between September 2017 – May 2018, Network Rail will be undertaking essential work in preparation for the upgrading of the TransPennine railway, which will deliver faster and more frequent services and improve connections between key towns and cities across the North. Vegetation will be removed to a distance of 6.5 metres either side of the tracks or up to our boundary.
Network Rail will be holding public events, starting from next week, to communicate with residents about the work and allow them to ask any questions they may have about what is planned.
The events will all take place between 5:00pm and 7.00pm and will be held in the following locations:
Batley: Monday 14 August – Batley Library, Market Place, WF17 5DA
Deighton: Tuesday 15 August – Deighton Chestnut Centre, 2a Chestnut Street, HD2 1HJ
Mirfield: Thursday 17 August – The Salvation Army Hall, 106 Huddersfield Rd, WF14 8AF
Marsden: Tuesday 22 August – Marsden Mechanics Hall, Peel Street, HD7 6BW
Huddersfield: Wednesday 23 August – Huddersfield Town Hall, Corporation St, HD1 2TA
Mossley – Tuesday 29 August – George Lawton Hall, OL5 0HR
Stalybridge – Wednesday 30 August – Stalybridge Civic Hall, Trinity Street, SK15 2BN
Greenfield – Monday 4 September – Greenfield Methodist Church, 9 Chew Vale, Greenfield, OL3 7EQ
Whilst the majority of the work will be carried out during day time hours Monday to Fridays (the occasional Saturday) 07.00hrs-19.00hrs, there may be times when we will need to work during the night. If this is the case we will notify residents of the dates and times of any night time work.
You would be very welcome to attend one of these events, or alternatively you can find out more information on the TransPennine Route Upgrade Programme here and specifically on the process involved in managing lineside vegetation here.
