People living in Werrington, Walton, Paston and Gunthorpe reported having their sleep disturbed at 4am by a loud drilling noise which was due to Network Rail engineers carrying out work to build a dive under at Werrington Junction.
Network Rail said it had sent out letters to more than 500 residents warning them that the works were due to take place.
However, among those to voice their anger on social media at being woken up was landlord of The Ploughman in Werrington, Andy Simmonds, who tweeted Network Rail that he would be making a formal complaint to Peterborough City Council.
Other residents voicing their disapproval also did not appear to be aware that the works were due to take place.
A Network Rail spokesperson said: “Most of the work to install sheet piling at Werrington has taken place during the day time, but some of it can only be carried out safely overnight when there are no trains on the line.
“Letters were sent to over 500 residents who live near the railway so they were aware that work would be taking place in the area between 11.45pm on Saturday to 8am on Sunday.
