Level Crossing Upgrades in the Selby Area

Network Rail is completing improvements to a number of level crossings in the Selby and Doncaster areas.

An open event for people to learn more about the changes will be held at Thorpe Willoughby Village Hall on Monday 13 May from 13.45 to 18.00. A short presentation about the changes will be given at the start of each hour from 14.00 17.00

The work will bring the crossings up to the latest standards and improve safety especially for pedestrians as unlocked wicket gates will be removed as part of the project,

The level crossings affected are:

Burn Lane, Selby

Henwick Hall, Common Lane, Selby

Sandhill Lane, Selby

Thorpe Gates, Leeds Road, Selby

Thorpe Hall, Dam Lane Selby

Balne Lowgate, Lowgate, Selby

Balne, Highgate, Selby

Moss, Moss Road, Doncaster

Fenwick, Fenwick Lane, Doncaster

Barcroft, Bar Croft Lane, Doncaster

Hayworth, Heyworth, Doncaster

The crossings at Burn Lane, Sandhill Lane, Fenwick, Barcroft, Heyworth and Balne Lowgate are moving from Victorian gates to barriers with road traffic signals and audible alarms.

The other locations at Moss, Balne, Henwick Hall, Thorpe Gates and Thorpe Hall already have barriers, road traffic lights and audible alarms, so the change here will not be very noticable. The crossings at Moss, Balne, Henwick Hall and Thorpe Hall will be upgraded from two to four barriers. Thorpe Gates already has four barriers.

The first crossings to be modernised will be Barcroft and Heyworth. These are planned for August 2013. The rest will follow by March 2014.
