Railway improvement work – Level Crossing and Signalling upgrades between Gomshall and Shalford Junction – from Saturday 18 February 2023 to March 2024

St Martha Parish Council

The attached letter from Network Rail sets out the work they will be doing from Saturday 18 February 2023 22:30 to 02:00 Monday 20 February to renew life expired railway signalling assets and upgrade the level crossings at Brook, Burrows Lane, Chilworth and Tangley with modern and safer technology. This will reduce the risk by 97% at each location, building a safer and more resilient railway for passengers and railway neighbours.

While the line is closed, passengers should check before they travel at for details of revised services and replacement buses.
