Network Rail has completed work to replace a level crossing in Downham Market, Norfolk.
Safety at the crossing has been improved as part of the £1.1m project, which includes new equipment that activates the barriers and lights protecting crossing users if a train overshoots the station. This preventative solution provides an extra safety measure to protect pedestrians and vehicles using the crossing.
In addition to the extra safety measures, the barriers have been renewed and new markings have been painted on the road to create a yellow box to warn vehicles not to stop on the crossing. To improve access, the fence line has been pulled back to widen the walkway for wheel chair users and buggies.
The level crossing re-opened on Monday 21 March, following completion of work that has taken place over several weekends since the end of February.
