We spent today preparing for the Walmer Road Level Crossing Rebuild, with most of the materials required transported to site.
We’ve even undertaken most of the preparations, including cutting rails where joints will be required and drilling holes to prepare the new island rails.
It’s all shaping up to be a nice straight forward job next week.
This afternoon we erected some semi permanent speed signs near Sawmill Rd (and updated one near Muckleford) to reflect the rise of track speed back to 25mph over the section we’ve just rerailed.
And while all that was happening, we had the flail mower hard at work tidying up the remaining long grass around Maldon.
It’s been a successful week! Next week will be all systems go to rebuild the crossing, Tuesday will be getting all the remaining materials and gear to site, meeting Maldon from 8am
