D2N2 is proud to have invested £5million of Local Growth Funding into the upgrading of the Market Harborough section of the Midland Mainline.
The ‘Market Harborough Line Speed Improvement Project’, enables trains to travel on the Midland Main Line at higher speeds. Network Rail have installed almost two miles of track in a new, straighter alignment as well as new signalling equipment.
The project has delivered a vastly improved Market Harborough station; with longer platforms for longer trains, new lifts and a new footbridge, and a better car park.
D2N2 collaborated with fellow Local Enterprise Partnerships in Leicestershire and Sheffield to give residents of the East Midlands the fast and efficient transport links to London vital to economic growth.
