In recent years Market Harborough station has had a major upgrade, with straighter tracks allowing trains to travel through at a higher speed, a new accessible footbridge, and 200 extra car parking spaces.

To allow teams to carry out the work safely, the area will be fenced off throughout and a clear diversion route will be in place.

Gary Walsh, Route Director for Network Rail's East Midlands route, said: "I'm so pleased to see this project underway. The new facility is just one element of a whole range of changes we've made at Market Harborough to provide a better station for passengers.

"Delays to this project have been frustrating and I hope station users will join me in welcoming this new progress. We’ll continue to work closely with East Midlands Railway to make real improvements that meet the needs of all station users."
