Thatcham, United Kingdom: Frustrated resident proposes short-term fix

23 Sep

A long-standing resident of Thatcham has proposed a system that takes date from Network Rail to advise motorists when the level crossing will close for the passage of trains. The idea being that an alert is sent to motorists who subscribe to the system the ability to plan an alternate route across the railway. The proposed system is presently unfunded and exists solely as a concept.

The real solution remains grade-separation but this will need substantial funding to be identified and planning issues to be overcome before it moves beyond an aspiration.
