Rail Signalling Upgrade
Network Rail is upgrading signalling on the line between Ferriby, Gilberdyke and Saltmarshe as part of a £50 million investment to improve the railway in East Yorkshire later this autumn.
Work will take place over 23.5 route miles and will include the installation of 49 new signals, 14 point end renewals, and 11 level crossing renewals. There will be times when bus replacement services will have to operate whilst the railway is closed between Selby and Hull and Goole and Hull.

Further closure of footpath between Hessle and Ferriby
The footpath was previously closed after a crack was found near the railway embankment.Work now needs to take place to install a temporary flood defence system to protect the railway from coastal erosion.

The work will see additional rock armour installed to stabilise the ground movement detected earlier this year. The footpath will be closed until Friday 15 March 2019. The work is vital and needs to be done so trains can be running reliably and safely.

During the previous closure, there were instances of trespass on the closed path, including one instance when someone walked along the railway lines. Network Rail will be installing anti-trespass fencing and people are urged to keep off the closed path. It is incredibly dangerous to trespass on the railway. You can also find out more on the Network Rail National Helpline on 03457 11 41 41.
