Network Rail deploys 14,000 strong army over May Day bank holiday continued
Easter 2015 - Orphanage Road bridge, Watford, being moved into position.
The major investment schemes included:
Crossrail: Over the bank holiday weekend some substantial new track and junctions were installed at Slough for future Crossrail services. This had limited impact on services as two of the four lines from Paddington to Slough remained open and available for services
London Liverpool Street: On Sunday and Monday the Great Eastern main line from Liverpool Street to Ingatestone saw some significant investment work as a new bridge was built at Pudding Mill Lane (nr Stratford) for future Crossrail services.
At the same time, new overhead lines and track were installed near Chadwell Heath leading to more reliable services.
Easter works - Trans Pennine Electrification - demolition of Brumber Hill bridge
London Waterloo: On Sunday and Monday a vital junction outside Waterloo station was replaced to deliver improvements to service reliability as a result.
Thameslink programme: The £6.5bn investment programme to run many more, faster, better services, north-south, through the heart of London continued over the bank holiday weekend.
While not on the scale of the other Easter work, there has been investment in track and signalling over the three days.
West Coast main line (WCML) to Scotland: Work around Wolverhampton, Stafford and Crewe - Europe’s busiest mixed-use long distance main line - continued over the weekend in three main areas.
On Sunday and Monday a new, more reliable signalling system was installed between Birmingham and Wolverhampton.
As part of the £250m investment programme to remove a major bottleneck on the WCML, new track and overhead lines were installed on Saturday and Sunday in and around Stafford.
Also on Saturday and Sunday, new track was installed between Crewe and Wigan on the WCML leading to more reliable services.
Major work around Glasgow: Work to the south and south east of Glasgow saw changes to Virgin Trains, ScotRail, Transpennine Express and Cross Country services over the weekend.
The investment schemes will see the demolition of a road bridge near Newton, a new footbridge installed near Motherwell and new track and junctions replaced near Carstairs
