Not All Rail Improvements Are Spectacular

I found this article from The Enquirer, which is entitled Essex set for faster trains after summer speed restriction is finally lifted.

This is said.

A LONG-STANDING speed restriction in place on the railway between Shenfield and Seven Kings, London, during the summer has been lifted by Network Rail.

The decision was made after the completion of important railway improvement works over Christmas. Network Rail engineers worked around-the-clock for 10 days to replace 12.5km of overhead wires at Gidea Park, untangling the complex web of crossovers, and replacing it with more durable and heat-resistant wires.

Passengers will not see any dramatic physical difference, but if the sun ever beats down again, the trains will still stick to the timetable.
