Yet more traffic chaos scheduled for Cally Road

January 9, 2011

Stop-go traffic will last for at least 6 weeks

Network Rail is carrying out work to the “Ferodo” rail bridge on Cally Road, starting on Monday 10th January. The structural repairs mean that one lane of traffic will be closed for a period of 6 weeks.

Traffic lights will control movement of vehicles. Work hours will be from 8am to 6pm Monday to Friday plus other work during weekends. The work is planned to finish on 21st February.

Network Rail says in a statement “we understand the effect our activities may have on the local community and can assure you that our team is familiar with working in close proximity to residents.  We will endeavour to keep the noise and disruption to an absolute minimum; however some disturbance during this period may be unavoidable due to the nature of the work.”

Questions or complaints should be made to a National Helpline on 08457 11 41 41.

Paul Convery comments “This is bad news indeed. It’s engineering work that Network Rail did not issue much advance notice about. It wasn’t mentioned in their consultation about the main railway works that started over Xmas. This kind of traffic disruption will not help local traders and will badly disrupt bus services on the Cally Road“.

    Not content with disrupting the traffic, contractors for Network Rail managed to bump into one of the lamp standards near the bridge. Luckily local resident Chris Gidden witnessed the incident, so the council should be able to get compensation from Network Rail for the damage done.
