PLANS FOR THE FINAL PHASE OF THE CONNECTING PATH AT BISHOP AUCKLAND AGREED : JULY 2021

At a recent joint meeting between Network Rail (NR) and the Weardale Railway the parties agreed a joint scheme whereby the NR appointed contractor will construct the whole of the connecting path between the two platforms at Bishop Auckland. The project will be jointly funded by contributions from NR, Weardale Railways Ltd (The Auckland Project), ACoRP, the Weardale Railway Trust and the Kingfisher Project.

Work is expected to start in October this year.
