Engineers work ‘around-the-clock’ to complete £1m Dalmuir project

Network Rail

NETWORK Rail has completed its £1 million project to upgrade ageing track near Dalmuir Station.

The organisation said that the investment will help to drive down delays and keep services running efficiently for passengers travelling through the station.

Work included an upgrade of the track running through the 127-year-old Dalmuir twin tunnels, which carry the railway underneath the Forth & Clyde Canal; a renewal of switches and crossings; and installation of new brackets to support the rails on platform five.

“We would also like to thank passengers and residents for their patience during the project.”
