The project for the Network Rail-South West Trains Alliance involves replacement of a dozen sets of points to the west of Wimbledon station. Work will take place over weekends from Christmas through to February.

John Halsall, infrastructure director for the Network Rail-South West Alliance, said: “This vital project will significantly improve one of the most important sections of railway on our route, which will boost reliability and punctuality for passengers travelling through Wimbledon and from many other stations and locations.”
