In Pictures: Wolverhampton rail replacement works

As we march towards, well, March and the planned reopening of the Midland Metro line between The Royal and Wolverhampton St George’s progress is continuing on the much delayed rail replacement project and with thanks to Michael Averill we are able to bring you another photo update of what has been happening recently.

At Steelhouse Lane, with The Royal stop immediately behind, the mine workings subsidence has now been filled in but the new trackbed has yet to be laid.

New rails have been laid between the Ring Road and the terminus. This will be the site of the new junction.

More relaid track on Bilston Road but note that no new track has been laid across the island or on the Wishbone Bridge. (All Photos by Michael Averill on 14th February 2015)
