NR plans Anglia cross­ing clo­sures

Rail (UK) - - Network News -

Network Rail has ap­plied to close or change the use of 130 level cross­ings across Cam­bridgeshire, Es­sex, Hert­ford­shire and Suf­folk.

A Trans­port and Works Act Or­der ap­pli­ca­tion has been sub­mit­ted to Sec­re­tary of State for Trans­port Chris Grayling. If ap­proved clo­sures and us­age changes to level cross­ings will start in late 2018.

Cross­ings iden­ti­fied for clo­sure in­clude those where there are pri­vate rights only, where a nearby al­ter­na­tive ex­ists, or where a new pub­lic route to an al­ter­na­tive can be eas­ily pro­vided. Other cross­ings will be down­graded to non­mo­torised users, al­though none of these are on A or B-roads.
