Question

Please could you use your good offices to establish from Network Rail whether late running resignalling work between Wanstead Park and Upper Holloway is proceeding in accordance with the revised schedule and will be complete by late September, allowing the constant weekend closures of the Barking-Gospel Oak route for engineering work to cease after 25 October as currently advertised?

I have been advised by Network Rail that commissioning will take place over the weekend of 14/15 November. However, Transport for London expects that additional weekend closures will follow for a couple of weekends after the new signalling has been commissioned to tidy up the work sites and demolish the redundant signal box at Haringey Park Junction.
