Pompy snag


I was pleased to note from last week's editorial that Mike Nichols appears to think that Network Rail's GRIP ensures that railway projects are delivered on time and to budget.

Sadly, in one notable example, this is manifestly not the case. I refer to the Portsmouth resignalling scheme that appears to have hit a snag which will result in its completion being vastly delayed.

As engineers and potential passengers, NCE readers might appreciate learning more of the reasons. They will further trust that they will not be repeated on the Basingstoke resignalling scheme about to be implemented.
