Network Rail Project to Upgrade Derbyshire Level Crossing Begins Next Month

 Thursday, February 27, 2020 


Network RailNetwork Rail will start work next month to improve Tutbury level crossing in Derbyshire, which will make sure it can continue to be used reliably for years to come.



Network Rail engineers will be replacing the old barrier gates and their components with new, modern ones. This will help to reduce delays to services and mean that the level crossing remains fit for purpose.



Improvement work is also taking place at Hockley level crossing in Uttoxeter and Alrewas level crossing in Lichfield. This work will not impact on train services, but there will be changes to access for motorists, cyclists and pedestrians, to allow it to take place safely.



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 in Derbyshire and the surrounding area and make sure they remain fit for purpose.



“The new barriers will improve the reliability of the level crossings in the Derbyshire area 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.”
