Fiskerton and Lowdham Train Station is Extending

Fiskerton and Lowdham Train Station is Extending

Fiskerton and Lowdham train station will be extended by Network Rail in the transport system’s very latest initiative to improve the travelling conditions of commuters across the country, particularly in the northern regions of the land. A grand total of no less than 48 million pounds were devoted towards the improvement of the signaling facilities along this Nottinghamshire line and the lengthening of the platform areas of those respective stations is therefore a direct necessity in order to allow for better services to run along those lines.  The vital work that will be going under way to do this at these two located spots along the busy line will commence on Saturday the 18th of this very month and will go on until May, the month when it is estimated that the works will be completed. Various quaint but far too antiquarian modes of railway communication along those lines (such as the signaling systems between the stops of Lowdham and Newark) will be duly dismantled. In their place will be installed a brand new and futuristically effective digitized signaling system that will enable safer and more accurate displays of activity information to the railway control base located in Derby.

Whereas previously the signaling systems at Fiskerton and Lowdham forced travelers to move further forward to the front carriages in order to exit at the station, a much longer platform installed by workers of Network Rail will ensure that they no longer will have to bother to disrupt the comfort of their journey in order to get off at their destination. Overall, the clear advantages of extended platforms are of a more comfortable journey and also less crowding and dangerous congestion on the platform, which can result in dangerous accidents and indeed has done in some areas of the country.

Mister Gary Walsh of Network Rail is pleased that these stations are finally getting the invested attention that they deserve.
