Residents of Hanwood have been invited to a drop-in information event next week to find out more information about Network Rail’s £200k investment to replace rail on the Cambrian Line.

Network Rail is replacing existing rail through Hanwood, near Shrewsbury, to help maintain the safety and reliability of the railway in the area.  The upcoming work will take place during the night over a four-week period between 4 and 30 August.

The drop-in event will take place at Hanwood Village Hall from 3.00pm until 6:30pm on Monday 16 July. No appointment is necessary and representatives from Network Rail’s project team will be on hand to provide information and answer any questions from residents ahead of this work.

Sean Wootton, programme manager for Network Rail in Wales and Borders said:

“This essential work to replace the rail through Hanwood will help keep the railway running reliably.  

 “I would like to thank the local community for their patience while we carry out this work and assure them that we are doing all we can to keep disruption and noise to a minimum.”
