About the Project:
Werrington Grade Separation Junction
One of the worst bottlenecks on the East Coast main line is the junction at Werrington, near Peterborough.
Currently, slow moving freight trains using the Stamford lines and the Great Northern Great Eastern lines need to cross over three lines of the East Coast main line, causing high speed passenger trains to have to slow down. This multimillion pound investment will mean freight trains no longer need to do this but will instead dive under the East Coast main line.
Morgan Sindall is designing and building a new two-track railway line, more than 3km in length, under the East Coast Main Line at the Werrington Junction that will enable high-speed trains to pass over the Great Northern Great Eastern Line. Existing Stamford Lines will be widened to the west to create four tracks. The central pair of tracks will then dive into a new underpass, below the ECML, and rise to meet the GNGE line approximately 600m after.
Site investigations are well underway and Morgan Sindall is currently taking the GRIP 4 Design through to GRIP 5. Main site works are planned from late Summer 2018 until completion in Spring 2021.
Morgan Sindall is an equal opportunities employer and has been accredited with the Positive About Disabled People ‘Two Ticks’ accreditation. We are also an Investors in People company.
