In Pictures: Wolverhampton St George’s rail replacement update

The much delayed rail replacement work at Wolverhampton St George’s is continuing as this picture update shows. The track in the second platform (roadside) has now been completely removed and is not due to be replaced with both tracks on the approach to the terminus now leading to the long-time preferred platform. Work is also ongoing on the approach to St George’s. It is planned that services will be able to run all the way through to the northern terminus at some point in March.

    I’m puzzled by the removal of the track in the second (‘roadside’) platform, since my understanding is that there are long-term plans for the line to be extended from St George’s into the town. If that is the case, will two tracks not be required here? Perhaps someone with better local knowledge than mine can enlighten me.

    It is the same with the current snow hill, platform 5 is the main one used most days.

    I would love to see the roadside platform used to display old wolverhampton corporation trams 34 and 49
