Network Rail report into Christmas rail chaos finds poor planning to blame
Report says there was insufficient contingency in project plan to ensure engineering work would finish in time for 27 December
Poor planning, equipment failures and communication breakdowns all contributed to the overrunning rail engineering work at Christmas which led to chaos at three London stations, a Network Rail report has said.
Physical work near Paddington station was completed on time but safety validation work that should have taken two hours took 10 hours, the report said.
