Network Rail has warned residents that more overnight work on the line between Kettering and Corby is on the way.

De-vegetation work along the route is ongoing and further work has now been scheduled to remove scrap and tamping, unload ballast and follow-up work.

A letter to residents living near the line from Network Rail’s community relations manager Denise Thompson said: “We understand that working by your property overnight is far from ideal, but we are obliged to work on the railway at times that cause least disruption to trains.

“Unfortunately this means carrying out a lot of our work at weekends or overnight.

“I hope this information is helpful and we apologise in advance for any inconvenience this essential work may cause.”
