The Poole Park Railway rebuild has finally started!

On December 6th Conservative Councillor Mark Anderson spent the day with officers, showing a Meridian reporter around the site as the contractors were setting up their compound.

He then spent the afternoon meeting the public as part of an engagement event at The Ark. Getting the railway running again has been one of Councillor Andersons priorities since he became the PFH responsible.

All the work will be completed and a train running on the track by Summer next year. There will however be some changes to the Railway; The main one being that the train will run in the opposite direction from before, there are also a few tweaks to the bends to improve safety.

Currently, the contractor is busy setting up the fencing to create their compounds and protect the work area. The first thing to notice will be the demolishing of the train shed and the removal of the track.
