Network Rail Trent Valley Four Track project
The TV4 project is part of the £8bn upgrade of the West Coast main line, and involves the doubling of the railway to four tracks along a 19km section between Armitage with Handsacre and Tamworth to remove a major bottleneck.
Built in the 1800s, the West Coast Main Line has developed into the UK’s busiest mixed traffic railway (responsible for 43% of Britain’s UK freight traffic) and is recognised as a leading European rail artery. Responsible for over 2,000 train movements each day, the route also caters for over 75 million passenger journeys per year.
The modernisation project is costing £8 billion and introduced a 125mph railway with tilting train operation between London and Glasgow in December 2005. The project is scheduled for completion 2008/2009.
