Road Closures or Maybe Not ...

It would appear that the Network Rail left hand is unaware of what's going on with the Network Rail right hand! The crossing works at East Dean have been halted because of the "wrong sort of barriers" being delivered. This has now affected the planned closure of West Dean barriers too.

 

The latest forecast is for the work to now take place in March.

 

Thanks to Andy Bowditch for keeping us in the loop.

 

However ... in March

 

 

Repairs to the damaged bridge and embankment just before entering West Dean (from WT) are due to start on 16 March and the road will be closed for two weeks. All traffic will be diverted via East Tytherley, Lockerley and East Dean.

 

What do you reckon are the chances of Network Rail now co-ordinating their level crossing closure with this one?
