Banking repairs nearly complete

A Manchester to Leeds Train passes the exact location of the 2011 derailment. The repairs to the retaining wall and enbankment where the landslip occured can be clearly seen.

Two pictures I have taken of the nearly completed works undertaken on Dudwel Lane due to the wall and landslip which caused the train derailment of Feb 2011.

Picture 1 shows a Manchester to Leeds Train passing the exact location of the 2011 derailment, the repairs to the retaining wall and enbankment where the landslip occured can be clearly seen.

Picture 2 (inset) was taken from across the valley at Siddal and shows the new substantial retaining walls which probably would not be appreciated from Dudwell Lane itself.
