Stevenage Railway Station - New Platform and Turnback, St Albans

About this event

Joe Bennett, Production Director for Spencer Group, will give a presentation on the construction and delivery of the Stevenage Turnback project. This is the development of a platform facility at Stevenage station for services to and from the Hertford Loop.

The new platform and track at Stevenage station will allow trains from the Hertford Loop to terminate and go back towards London without using up capacity on the existing tracks. The project will increase capacity and improve resilience and reliability.

The works include the construction of a new platform facility, almost 2km of new railway line from Broadhall Way Bridge to Stevenage station and earthworks to the existing embankment. It also includes track drainage, as well as alterations to existing signalling infrastructure. Completion of the infrastructure is expected in 2020 and Great Northern expects to resume weekday train services in the summer 2020 timetable.
