Grange Residents Invited To Shut-Crossing Info' Session

Users of a footpath crossing on the railway line at Grange-over-Sands are being invited to talk about its future today (Wednesday).

It's after a request to Cumbria County Council for it to be closed. 

Bailey Lane crossing is on the line between Carnforth and Barrow and has been closed since the 13th of July after two members of the public were nearly hit by a train.  

Network Rail staff will be on hand to speak with local people from 11am to 7pm at Victoria Hall.

Around 50 trains a day go over the crossing at speeds of up to 50mph.

Ben Parish, level crossing manager for Network Rail, said: “Following a near miss at Bailey Lane back in the summer we closed the crossing to ensure the safety of all users while we work on the best long-term plan. 

"Safety will always be our top priority. We’d love to discuss our plans with local people at our drop-in event.”
