Network Rail submits final proposals to close or modify level crossings across Suffolk

Published on : Saturday, March 25, 2017

2Network Rail has applied to the Secretary of State for Transport for a Transport and Works Act Order (TWAO) to close or modify 24 level crossings across Suffolk.The company has been working to reduce the risk that level crossings pose and has developed proposals to manage the possible closure or change of use of around 130 level crossings in Anglia across Cambridgeshire, Suffolk, Essex, Havering, Hertfordshire, Southend and Thurrock.

 

Public consultation events took place across the county in June, September and December 2016. Following analysis of all the responses from the public and other stakeholders, many plans have been adapted. Seven level crossings have been removed from the project; Great Barton, Steggalls, Finningham, Rectory Road, Beecroft, Haughley Green and Westerfield footpath level crossing.

 

Closing level crossings and diverting to alternatives will make the railway safer by removing the point where people can come into contact with trains. The closures will also help improve efficiency and reliability. The closures will facilitate potential future developments for faster and more frequent services.
