Over the past weekend, Linbrooke Services successfully completed major piling installation works at Ambergate Junction for the Ambergate Signalling Project. A huge thank goes to the project team for all their hard work and dedication. Very well done!
The Ambergate Signalling project works include installation of a new crossover together with turnouts from the goods loops and the Matlock branch immediately to the south of the existing junction. The junction is being relocated to the south and will, therefore, be on straight track for reliability, ease of future maintenance and to provide scope for line speed improvements on the route. The existing junction will be recovered and the tracks re-aligned to flatten out the curve.
