Residents invited to information event about St Albans level crossing

London North Western

Residents are invited to an information event to find out more about Network Rail’s closure proposal for Cottonmill Lane level crossing.

Following incidents of deliberate misuse at the level crossing, Network Rail is working with Hertfordshire County Council and St Albans City and District Council to find an alternative to a crossing at this location.

Network Rail’s priority will always be the safety of those who use the level crossing and an information event is being held to present plans and designs to the local community and answer any questions.

The event will take place on Tuesday 11 September between 4pm and 7pm at St Julian’s Church Hall, Abbots Avenue, St Albans, AL1 2HY.

We run 20 of the UK's largest stations while all the others, over 2,500, are run by the country's train operating companies.

Every day, there are more than 4.7 million journeys made in the UK and over 600 freight trains run on the network. People depend on Britain's railway for their daily commute, to visit friends and loved ones and to get them home safe every day. Our role is to deliver a safe and reliable railway, so we carefully manage and deliver thousands of projects every year that form part of the multi-billion pound Railway Upgrade Plan, to grow and expand the nation's railway network to respond to the tremendous growth and demand the railway has experienced - a doubling of passenger journeys over the past 20 years.

We are building a better railway for a better Britain.
