Work has started on a £45 million pound project to dual a length of railway track between Swindon and Kemble stations.
There's only been a single track since the 1960's, limiting the number of trains which can use the twelve-mile stretch.

Work has started on a 45 million pound project to double a twelve mile length of track between Swindon and Kemble stations.
There has been just a single railtrack between the two stations since the late 1960s, when one of the tracks was removed to save money.
Network rail says the work should be finished by march and will mean up to four trains per hour will be able to run in each direction.

Work starts today on adding a second track to the railway line between Swindon and the Gloucestershire village of Kemble. The work will reinstate a track that was removed in the 1960s and increase the frequency of trains through the Cotswolds to the Midlands.
