Drop-in event to present plans to renew Ashtead level crossing and improve safety at Green Lane level crossing

Published on : Saturday, February 20, 2016

5Network Rail will answer questions and provide updates to residents between 1.30pm and 8pm at Ashtead Peace Memorial Hall, Woodfield Lane. Residents can drop-in to the session at any point during these times.Ashtead Crossing, at Woodfield Lane, is being renewed in July 2017 to improve the safety and reliability of the crossing.

 

Green Lane footpath crossing is the highest risk footpath crossings on Network Rail’s Wessex route, a route which includes trains running to and from London’s Waterloo station, because people using the crossing are only protected by warning signs.

 

Alex Boatfield, Project Manager for Network Rail, said: “Through our £40bn railway upgrade plan, we are working to deliver a safer and more reliable railway. Green Lane footpath crossing is a high-risk crossing as the only safety feature at the crossing is signage. This risk is exacerbated by the frequency and speed of the trains running over the crossing. We would like to discuss a range of potential solutions and, at the same time, present our plans to renew the level crossing at Ashtead.”
