Tallington, UK: Petitioning the County Council to part fund grade-separation project

4 Feb

The long-running saga of the grade-separated solution to the elimination of the Tallington level crossing of the busy East Coast Main Line and the associated by-passing of Tallington village, both in Lincolnshire has seen activists launch an online petition which so far has 123 signatures.

The petition says:

We, the users of Tallington Level Crossing, understand that Network Rail are now seeking to replace the crossing with a road bridge, to allow many more passenger trains to use the East Coast Main Line safely. The off-set bridge, paid for by Network Rail, would eliminate the long delays experienced by road users at the level crossing but needs linking back into the road system by LCC. We therefore petition Lincolnshire County Council to budget for a link road contribution in this years budget; to enable work to proceed as soon as possible and allow the route to go round the village not through it, ensuring a sensible traffic flow for all users at all times. Please sign up here now and also send your comments via the budget consultation process. Thank you.
