SHORT NOTICE OF NIGHT TIME RAIL WORKS AT TOTTON TRAIN STATION & YARD
I am writing to inform you of some short notice work which is required on the railway in the Totton area. As part of this urgent and essential work, Network Rail will be replacing timbers and sleepers between Totton Station and Totton yard (adjacent to Maynard Road). This work is essential to ensure the safe and efficient operation of the railway in the area.
The operatives will be using road vehicles, small plant and hand tools, as well as site lighting to complete the work. Although we have specifically selected equipment which has been designed to minimise noise, there may be some disturbance to lineside neighbours as a result of the works, for which I apologise in advance.
We’re obliged to work, whenever possible, at times that cause the least disruption to train services. Unfortunately, this means carrying out a lot of our improvements during the night and at weekends as there are fewer services running at these times.
These works at Totton will take place from: 6 June 2020 to 19 June 2020 from 22:00 in the evening until 06:00 the following morning. There are no daytime works scheduled.
As I mentioned above, due to the nature of the work and the tools we use, some disturbance from the operation of our machinery will be unavoidable and I’m sorry for any inconvenience this may cause. Delivering the highest standards of safety is paramount to our work and keeping people safe on and around the railway is at the heart of everything we do. As part of this commitment to safety, all staff working on site are fully briefed on working responsibly in the local community and keeping noise levels to an absolute minimum level.
I would like to apologise for the short notice warning of these works, and would appreciate your support in communicating these works through your social and communication channels to your communities and members. If you have any questions or queries, please do not hesitate to get in touch with myself by email or on the telephone number provided below. Lineside neighbours are welcome to contact our 24-hour helpline which is also available at the weekend on 03457 11 41 41, quoting “Totton – urgent sleeper and timber repairs” should they require further information.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
