30/08/2022 Brief update from Charles Baker (Network Rail)

I’m really sorry there’s still no update. I was hoping to have some dates for you a couple of weeks ago. Regrettably, we’re still working to agree a revised schedule of railway closures so, as yet, there are no confirmed dates on which the work will be done. I appreciate the frustration at the length of time this is taking but will let you know as soon as I have further information.
