How has the East Coast Upgrade been impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak?

Understandably, a number of key pieces of engineering work were stood down as COVID-19 took hold and social distancing measures were implemented across the country. This has caused a certain level of delay to some of the larger blockades which were due to be taking place towards the end of 2020 and at the beginning of 2021.

Fortunately, at sites such as London King’s Cross & Werrington, work has recommenced under social distancing guidelines and the above dates have been confirmed by Network Rail.
