Wellingborough Station is located on the Midland Mainline

The station consists of three operational platforms with a disused 4th platform on the Eastern side of the railway. The Down Fast and Up Fast serve Platforms 1 and 2 respectively. The Up and Down Slow line is a bidirectional line which serves Platform 3 which is significantly shorter than the other platforms.

The station is located on the edge of an existing residential area; therefore the team implemented a clear communications plan, with all noisy activities risk assessed and the risks mitigated to minimise the nuisance to residents and local business.
