Network Rail has completed its work to upgrade the railway in west Cornwall, which will offer passengers more reliable journeys. A team of engineers, with the help of six Network Rail engineering trains, removed old track and ballast between Penzance and Truro, and on the St Ives Bay line. They went on to replace it with new ballast, railway track and sleepers. Since starting the work more than one kilometre of new track, sleepers and ballast were installed, around 1.4km of rail and sleepers were repaired and 15 signalling and communications cabinets were replaced.
