Delay to station improvements

AN INJURY to a member of the public has halted improvement works to Skegness Railway station.

Part of the £21million works to improve tracks and station buildings has been put on stand-by after a hoarding came lose inflicting minor injuries to a passer-by.

A spokesman for Network Rail said: “Safety is always top priority and work has been halted while a full review of working practices is carried out.

“We are working with our contractor and the other funding parties to resume work as soon as we are all satisfied that it is appropriate to do so.”
