Network Rail has appointed Dean and Dyball to construct Corby’s new station. Work on the £10.22million facility, which will reconnect the town with the passenger network and provide a link to London, started on 29 July. Partners behind the scheme include East Midlands Development Agency (emda), Network Rail, East Midlands Trains, English Partnerships and North Northants Development Company. Emda is investing almost £5million into the station’s development.
Preparatory work at the site took place in June to replace track, sleepers and ballast. Construction will continue until late November. East Midlands Trains will manage the station: its first train will leave Corby on 14 December.
