Emsworth, UK: Housing plans cause Network Rail to challenge them

23 Jun

Network Rail has raised its concerns that the prospect of 269 new homes will have a negative safety impact on the Southborne level crossing near Emsworh, West Sussex. The concerns relate principally to traffic blocking-back over the level crossing as a result of the highways network in the area being unable to cope with the extra road traffic that is likely.

Network Rail’s concerns have been submitted to Chichester District Council, the local planning authority.

    As the Level Crossing Manager for this area, it isn’t Southbourne (which is a CCTV) by nearby Inlands Road which is an AHB. This is where the problem is.
