New warning system to improve safety at footpath level crossings across Anglia

Monday 30 Jan 2017

Three footpath level crossings in Suffolk and Essex are now safer thanks to a new audible warning system, alerting pedestrians of approaching trains.  The crossings are the first of a total of 23 that will have the new kit installed, making the railway safer and more reliable as part of Network Rail's Railway Upgrade Plan.
