Doncaster residents invited to find out more about new railway underpass

Region & Route:
London North Eastern & East Midlands

Network Rail is inviting residents in Doncaster to find out more about a Network Rail project to construct a new underpass behind Kelsey Gardens in Bessacarr.

The underpass will improve safety in the area by removing the need for pedestrians, cyclists and horse riders to use level crossings in the area. Network Rail will begin work on the scheme in January 2020.

Network Rail is holding a public information event about the work on Friday, 15 November between 14:30 and 19:00 at St Francis of Assisi Café.  Workers from Network Rail, Doncaster Metropolitan Borough Council and Persimmon Homes will be on hand to answer any questions which residents may have.

Anyone who wishes to find out more but cannot make the event, should call the Network Rail National Helpline on 03457 11 41 41.
