Level crossing in Cornwall to temporarily close as upgrade to improve safety continues this week

Published on : Friday, March 3, 2017

2Residents and passengers in Cornwall are reminded that a level crossing in Lostwithiel will temporarily close from Friday as Network Rail continues to deliver its Railway Upgrade Plan.

 

Network Rail’s orange army will be upgrading Lostwithiel level crossing, near Bodmin, to improve safety as they renew the barrier, the machine that operates the barrier and the LED and road traffic lights, also known as wig wags. In addition, Network Rail will also be upgrading the audible warning devices, creating suitable housing for the machine that operates the barrier and installing signage and road markings.

 

The level crossing will be closed from Friday, 3 March at 10pm to Monday, 13 March at 5am as Network Rail work around-the-clock to deliver the upgrade. A sign-posted diversionary route will be in operation at all times during the closure for vehicles and pedestrian attendants will help people cross.

 

Already in 2017 Network Rail have undergone enabling works to prepare for the temporary closure of the level crossing.

 

Ife Adekoya, scheme project manager at Network Rail, said: “The modernisation of the level crossing forms part of our Railway Upgrade Plan and will help keep the community and passengers even more safe. We recognise that any road closure will inevitably cause a level of inconvenience to the local community and we have worked closely with Cornwall County Council to ensure there is a suitable diversionary route.”
