I took these pictures as I passed the Werrington Dive-Under on my way North this morning.

It seems to be coming on.

  1. East Coast Upgrade (@ECMLupgrade) Tweeted: 👀 This fantastic bird’s-eye view shows the great progress we’re making at Werrington, north of Peterborough, to construct a new line and tunnel to let freight trains dive under the East Coast Main Line, making room for more passenger trains as part of our #EastCoastUpgrade.

    Network rail has issued a video of this project from above which given complaints about HS2 and suggestions of upgrading existing lines shows how much land is still needed !

  2. Werrington is the third big dive-under project after Acton and Bermondsey. I wonder how many others are in the pipeline, now they seem to be able to build them without causing disruption.

  3. Interesting press release from NR One advantage of Covid means there are fewer passengers to be inconvenienced by engineering works of this scale.
