25m mast to be built at Nunhead junction

Oli has sent us a copy of a letter he got from Network Rail, announcing that a 25m communications mast is to be built at Nunhead Junction, where St Asaph Road meets Aspinall Road.

The mast's construction is part of a programme of works to deliver a new system that will allow continuous communication between the driver and the signallers, "to improve safety, reliability and punctuality."

The tower is pretty tall - about one third the height of the new tower being built at the Deptford Distillery - but hopefully for nearby residents, it won't be too intrusive as the line is in a cutting at that point. Work should be complete by September.
