Just some questions about the planned improvements to the Stoke-on-Trent to Derby section of the Crewe to Derby line. I know Network Rail have plans to close all the intermediate signal boxes and replace the semaphore signals along the line between Stoke Junction and North Stafford Junction with coloured lights controlled from Derby. Network Rail also have plans to single the line through the relatively low Meir railway tunnel to allow higher freight containers to use the line. Does anyone know when the improvements are happening as I though the signal box closures were going to happen this year although time for that is slowly running out. Also when there improvements are taking place how much disruption is there likely to be? Cheers to anyone who knows.
