Network Rail – Line Management Tree Works

Network Rail are holding an event to to advise on upcoming woodland management work that is required on the railway line between Halewood and Hunts Cross. They have advised:

“In order to maintain and operate a safe and reliable railway, work will involve a combination of removing and pruning vegetation on railway land along a 2-mile section of track. This is necessary to keep immediate trackside areas clear of encroaching vegetation, as well as removing or reducing (where appropriate) any trees on railway land that are tall enough to strike a train or critical infrastructure.

To support this work, I would like to invite you to a drop-in session we will be hosting from 4:30pm – 6:30pm on Thursday 23 June at The Arncliffe Sports & Community Centre, Arncliffe Road, Halewood, Liverpool, L25 9PA. Our project team will be on hand to answer questions you may have regarding the work”.

Where possible this work is taking place during daytime hours, Monday – Friday until December 2022 however some work can only safely take place at night whilst train services are not in operation. More detail can be found in this letter: Network Rail Letter
