Nottingham's £100m railway improvements outlined24 July 2012
.Improvements to Nottingham's railway infrastructure with a value of £100 million are set to take place.
Network Rail will install over 140 new signals, relay six miles of railway line and refurbish or create a number of new stations.
"Nottingham is such an important city in the East Midlands and the station improvements will create the gateway which the city deserves," the organisation's route managing director Martin Frobisher said.
Two footpaths and three signal boxes are also to be closed, while two level crossings will be renewed, which should improve safety and increase efficiency around the region.
Reliability, flexibility and speed will be supported as a result of the upgrades, with some signalling gantries and other resignalling upgrades having already taken place.
Many of the significant improvement works are scheduled to take place in summer 2013 and passengers will be informed about these operations closer to the time.
Funding for the project has come from the Office of Rail Regulation and Network Rail.
