Work on a new railway station bridge has been delayed.

The works at Elstree and Borehamwood station, which are being carried out by Network Rail, are now expected to be completed by the end of July.

The discovery of buried cables underneath platform one delayed initial works, as cables needed to be disconnected and diverted around the footprint of the new bridge.

Cameras and monitors on the platforms also needed to be repositioned in order to maintain visibility.

The new bridge will allow less mobile passengers, including people in wheelchairs, access to all platforms via the newly installed lifts.

Well that’s a really positive move by the Government, I salute them for it, it will really allow the extra comfort to the people who are in wheelchairs, I hope the disturbance caused by the buried cables is not a long one, as I want see this project to completed as soon as possible, my best wishes are with the workers working on this project.

Strange isn't it, project delayed by "buried cables". Wasn't that the excuse used at Elstree Crossroads earlier this year that delayed that project too?

That excuse must be top of the pile in the 2014 drawer of excuses.
