Network Rail engineers will be replacing the old barrier gates and their components with new, modern ones at Caverswall level crossing in Stoke-on-Trent, Hockley level crossing in Uttoxeter and Alrewas level crossing in Lichfield.
Installing new, modern level crossing barriers will create a more resilient railway, help to reduce delays to services and mean that the level crossings remain fit for purpose.
In order for the work at each level crossing to be carried out safely, there will be changes to access for motorists, cyclists and pedestrians.
The improvement work will take place during the following dates:
Vinny Briggs, Route Level Crossing Manager for Network Rail, said: “This is really important work to modernise these level crossings and make sure they remain fit for purpose.
“The new barriers will improve the reliability of the level crossings in Staffordshire and therefore, help to reduce delays on the railway.
“We are working hard to minimise any disruption whilst this work takes place and would like to thank all those impacted for their patience.”
