Offord & Buckden, UK: An alternative is needed if crossing is eliminated

21 Jul

Elimination of Offord level crossing of the East Coast Main Line (ECML) between Offord and Buckden must only progress if an alternative route across the railway is provided is the affected community’s expectation. If no replacement is provided the only option is the lengthy detour via either Huntingdon or St Neots.

Network Rail is currently undertaking consultation on this and many other proposals it has tabled for the closure of level crossings on the ECML South of Doncaster. The community expects to learn more at public meetings on July 19th and 24th, 2014.
