The Reopening Of The Gospel Oak To Barking Line Is Slipping

In October 2016, I wrote The Gospel Oak To Barking Line Is Planned To Reopen On February 6th 2017.

But a couple of weeks ago, this date had slipped to the fourteenth.

I have just checked the reopening date this morning on the National Rail train timetable and it appears to be the 27th of February.

I don’t give it much credence.

  1. No, it’s been 24/2 for last 3 months. That’s when the paid for bus replacement stops.

    Loads to do here.

    Let’s see if they make it

    Nr is confident.

    • There’s certainly no way GOBLIN will reopen on Feb 25 2016. As quoted. You’d have to go back in time for that.

      Work finishes 24/2/17, but I don’t think it’s fit for purpose.


      Your daily rail.
