Cambridgeshire rail loops make train travel greener

In Cambridgeshire, close to Ely Station, new rail loops are being constructed which will make rail transportation a more environmentally friendly process.

Network Rail is conducting the work which will see the loops installed on the Felixstowe to Nuneaton route. The new loops will mean that trains are able to carry larger containers and will improve the freight transportation facilities in the UK.

The loops mean that trains will be able to take a direct route to markets in the north of the country, from the port that is located in Felixstowe. Tim Cook works at Network Rail and is responsible for the project, he has said, “It is estimated that this new installation is going to reduce the number of lorry journeys needed each year by 750,000. This is going to significantly reduce carbon emissions and improve safety on roads.”

It is estimated that the project will be completed by 2013 and it is a part of a larger project being run by Network Rail, that is set to improve the state of freight transportation in the country. Another replacement is being made in Romsey, where a bridge is being replaced with a higher alternative, so that larger trains can pass underneath it.
