Re-Signalling at Frodsham Juntion

Unread postby HowdenClough » Fri Dec 29, 2017 2:16 pm

Does anyone have a date for the actual commissioning of the new signalling/panel at Frodsham Junction, prior to the reinstatement of regular services over the Halton Curve later in 2018 ?

No Date as such but I believe the new signalling is aimed for May when Halton Junction and Runcorn boxes shut.
I'm possibly going to be there soon'ish and will update when I know more.

Weekly ops notices are saying stage 1 of weaver - edge hill Resignalling is going over on may 9th. Whether this actually happens, and also if its just the main line itself being sent over to the ROC for now, that's upto NR.

I believe the semaphore signals will be removed and replaced by colour light ones (amongst other work) during two weekend blockades.
The seldom used loop is being retained but shortened by 25 metres.
The shell of the box is being used to house the new IFS panel that will be going in by 5th March (not sure how accurate the date I've been told is though). The new relay room is already in place adjacent to the box.

All the ironwork within the signal box will he removed to accommodate the panel and obviously when Halton Junction box goes in May, Frodsham will work to Ashburys ROC for services to/from Runcorn.

I have heard that Blackpool migration will be the last for some time time now. So these boxes may live on yet.
