Royston, GA: Crossing closures generate opposition

14 May

Plans to close four level crossings in Royston have generated opposition including from volunteer firemenn concerned at the impact on their response times. Other opposition comes from some affected residents and businesses which feel they will be disadvantaged by the plans of the Hartwell Railroad.

The Hartwell Railroad has asked the city council to close crossings at Bowers, Carlton, Tony Jones Street and that Highway 17 and Lee Street. A decision on this is expected on May 26th, taking account of views represented at the recent public hearing. Also, it will need to consider the views of officers and the availability of options other than the proposal of the Hartwell Railroad
