New forecast completion time for repairs to Scunthorpe and Doncaster railway line
Work on a rail line which was closed due to a landslide is now expected to be completed by early July.
A landslide from the spoil heap at Hatfield Colliery at Stainforth caused the closure of the track between Doncaster and Scunthorpe and Doncaster and Goole.
Approximately 1 million cubic metres of material needs to be moved by Hatfield Colliery before the rail line east of Doncaster can be repaired.
While the colliery moves the spoil, Network Rail teams are clearing damaged vegetation, completing detailed land investigations and finalising designs for the repair.

Phil Verster, route managing director for Network Rail, said: "Because of the nature of the material in the spoil heap, the work to stabilise it and remove the material from the railway is complex and will take some time.
"Our estimate for the completed repair remains early July, but this is an estimate.
"I thank passengers for their continued patience and assure them we are doing everything we can to restore a full service as quickly as possible."
