Rail journeys between Rugby and Stafford should now be far more reliable following the completion of more than a mile of railway track upgrades.
As part of a £2.6m Network Rail investment, work has been carried out on the section of track over the last four weekends.
The newly improved railway lines reopened on August 16, 2021.
The essential upgrade works took over a total of 240 hours to complete, with more than 500 railway workers involved.
James Dean, Network Rail’s West Coast South Route Director, said: “I’d like to thank passengers for bearing with us over the last month while we carried out this essential work to improve the Trent Valley line for the future.
“The section of track between Rugby and Stafford is one of the busiest sections of mixed use passenger and freight railway line in Europe, so making sure it takes people and goods to where they need to be safely, quickly and reliably is our top priority as we build back better from the coronavirus pandemic.”
