Ashington Track Work - Points Make Prizes !

Updated: Jul 28, 2023


Last weekend saw some major track works carried out by Network Rail and their contractors in the Ashington area.

As well as replacing track between the new station and Green Lane level crossing, a new set of points have been installed so that trains can access the new station platform at Ashington and then change tracks to head back towards Newcastle. The new points will make running passenger trains on the line possible.


The new points will make running passenger trains on the line possible and it's been a huge investment in Ashington as part of the project to restore passenger trains to the Northumberland Line.








Hospital crossing (the foot crossing between Roseneath Court & Darnley Road) has also now closed and here are the alternative walking routes, with nearby schools also shown on the map.

The map has been shared with local schools to help parents and children when they return to school after the summer holidays.
