Speeding through Nuneaton

[ November 19, 2012   //   ]

Transport minister Simon Burns officially opened a new piece of railway designed to speed freight from Felixstowe to the Midlands on 14 November. A rail ‘flyover’ at Nuneaton will remove conflicts between freight and passenger trains at the vital junction and is part of a long-term investment programme on the Felixstowe-Nuneaton route. The entire route can now carry high cube 9’6” high containers rather than having to move via the congested North London line.
