Network Rail have been sending out a letter to ‘lineside neighbours’ about upcoming railway works in Rayleigh. They will be carrying out improvement works between Southend and Shenfield from 13 June and lasting until 2019. Presumably each individual bit of track will be undergoing works only once during the four years.
However the main aspect of this is that there will be four access points for the road-to-rail vehicles, and one of these will be at ‘the western end of Rayleigh Station Car Park” and this will be used at certain times at overnight and at weekends. Network Rail say “some disruption is inevitable but we do what we can to minimise this.” They have arranged a drop-in session at the Cloister West of Holy Trinity Church next Tuesday 9th June 6.15-8.15 pm where you can get more info.
