Work Starts to Install Gates at Halesworth Station

Work is due to start today to install gates on the barrow crossing at Halesworth Station. The gates will act as a physical barrierbetween pedestrians and the railway and a timely reminder to people to stop, look and listen for trains before they cross.

Therese said: "The work follows the successful campaign last summer to keep the crossing open, after Network Rail agreed to the installation of gates rather than close the crossing.

Network Rail are clear though that if people continue to cross unsafely, then there is a risk that the crossing will have to close in the future. I hope the installation of these gates will help change behaviour so passengers will still be able to enjoy a safe and convenient passage to the other side of the station."
