Great Work in March

As well as the work to build 6 new stations and lots of track works on the Northumberland Line, there’s also lots of great work going on behind the scenes in our local communities. There’s a huge mix of training and work opportunities, work in the community and work in schools and education going on too. Here’s some highlights of what’s been delivered in March:

  • 2 work placements for a Women into Construction pilot programme have taken place, with one candidate being offered an apprenticeship role on the construction project.

  • A site clearance at Forest Hall Young People’s Club so that an outside area can be used for sport and recreation purposes.

  • A World of Work Careers Fair was attended at Duke’s Secondary School, along with an ongoing mentoring programme.

  • Bridge Building & Dream Big for Engineering workshops were delivered at 2 local schools.

  • A group from the project team had a volunteer day at the Dales School to carry out some preparation work on their Pacer train so that one of the carriages can have an internal repaint.

  • New hoardings celebrating the line's heritage and community connections have been erected in Ashington.
