Monday’s problems on the website has caused us to scale our release plans back a bit to make sure the site’s stable. Some of the work we’ve done since Monday has involved adding in extra monitoring to check that our fixes have been successful and, so far, they have been.
So, what have we added?
The biggest thing is the new Gloucester map, which links up with the Bromsgrove and Swindon maps, covering Gloucester to near Chepstow, Stroud and Stonehouse to Standish Junction, Gloucester Yard and all the way up to just outside Bristol Parkway. We’re planning to extend our coverage westwards too.
We’ve also fixed numerous little things, from platform numbers and junction links on the Warrington map, to missing signals between Crewe and Winsford, some TVM430 marker boards which should have been limit-of-shunt markers at Staines, and missing signals at Worting Junction. We’ve also taken off the schedule count on the Schedule Search page, which was causing inefficient database lookups and contributing to Monday’s issue.
Thanks to everyone who’s been in touch over the past fortnight – it’s time to sit in the remains of the sunshine with a glass of wine and chill out for a bit.
