Rail engineers have been working around the clock in and around Huddersfield Railway Station.

New bridge decks were installed over the weekend and engineering works will continue around Huddersfield and Morley for five days this week.

Bus replacements and diversionary routes will be used so passengers are advised to check before they travel.

Work has also been ongoing inside Huddersfield Railway Station. On Saturday night a Relocatable Equipment Building (REB) was lifted by a crane at Hillhouse and loaded onto two trailers before being taken to Huddersfield station.

The REB is a modular building – modest looking from the outside – but bristling inside with the latest digital technology to control the railways.

They are described as ‘relocatable’ but once they are in place they are rarely re-located. The systems inside are custom-built at the supplier’s factory and then the REB is ‘relocated’ to its intended site so it is ready to go when installed.

Work on the roofs inside the station is also underway. Scaffolding supports have been erected ready for the canopies to be removed and restored.

Crews will be working around the clock at Huddersfield until Monday February 26. Passengers are warned of disruption at Huddersfield station again next weekend, February 24 and 25.

Works will also be carried out in Batley and Dewsbury and also on the station upgrade at Morley this week.

Chris Nutton, major projects director at TransPennine Express, said: “The work around Morley and Dewsbury is essential for the delivery of more reliable services for our customers, as well as the delivery of the upgraded Morley station.

“We will be running an amended timetable on our North route while these improvement works are being carried out, diverting trains between Huddersfield and Leeds.

“Rail replacement buses will also be in place to keep customers on the move for more local journeys. We’d like to advise customers to check before they travel.”
