The work involved 25,000 people worked round-the-clock over Christmas and the New Year on more than 300 projects, and it caused major delays and disruptions at time.

But today Network rail bosses said it was worth it - and thanked people for their patience.

Martin Frobisher, London North Western's route managing director at Network Rail, said: “I’d like to thank passengers for their patience over the festive period. We understand our work can be disruptive, but it is carefully planned to cause the least disruption to the fewest people. The upgrades and maintenance carried out will help deliver a bigger, better, more reliable railway for passengers in 2019 and beyond.”
