Timelapse footage released by Network Rail has illustrated a significant upgrade of the railway in Bradford.
Part of the Great North Rail Project, the work has resulted in the removal of platform restrictions at the station, which means trains have more flexibility when entering the station.
Completed over the last May bank holiday weekend, the timelapse footage shows more than 100 employees of Network Rail working on the improvements at Bradford, with in excess of 2,000 hours invested into the project so that work was complete on time.
Rob McIntosh is the Route Managing Director at Network Rail. He said the footage is a great demonstration of the efforts made by the company’s engineers.
He said: “The footage highlights the hard work that goes on behind the scenes to improve the railway and we look forward to passengers reaping the benefit of this £2.5 million investment, which will make sure that we can continue to provide a railway which meets the needs of the communities and economies we serve.”
