A message from Network Rail regarding work to replace St Erth Footbridge
We have now started work to replace the footbridge at St Erth station with a new footbridge with lifts to make the station fully accessible to all platforms. Work commenced on Monday 4 September and will be completed in spring 2024.
We’ll mostly be working during weekdays from 7am to 5.30pm but sometimes may also need to work overnight from 9pm on to 8am Sunday morning to carry out work when trains aren’t running.
While we work, St Erth station, the car park and access between all platforms will remain open and passengers won’t be affected.
Here’s an outline of our work:
|September||Set up the site, erect fences, deliver materials.|
|October||Widen platforms, excavate, and install foundations.|
|November/December||Excavate and install lift pits and install lift foundations.|
|Begin installation of new footbridge.
Install temporary stairs.
Dismantle old footbridge and relocate to heritage railway.
Complete installation of new footbridge.
|March-May||Install lifts and electric works.
Finishing works including landscaping and surfacing.
The nature of our work often means some disturbance is unavoidable. Our teams are aware that they are working close to your home and will try to minimise disruption as much as possible, but we apologise in advance if you are disturbed during these works.
If our programme needs to change or we need to carry out work that is noisier than usual, we’ll be in touch again.
