type Press release

New automatic barriers at White Notley and Cressing level crossings and new pedestrian lights at Motts Lane and Cut Throat Lane in Witham will be brought into operation over the Bank Holiday weekend (24/25/26 May).

The crossings are being updated as part of Railtrack's £220 million project to install new signalling equipment between Liverpool Street and Colchester, including the line to Braintree.

The old, manned crossings at White Notley and Cressing are being replaced with automatic barriers with warning lights and alarms, whilst the two pedestrian crossings will also benefit from new warning lights and alarms.

Users' guides, which explain how to use the new crossings, have been produced by Railtrack and distributed to local homes and businesses.

Railtrack East Anglia director Michael Holden commented "This work is part of Railtrack's commitment to invest in the railway.

"White Notley and Cressing crossings will be operated by the approach of a train and barriers will rise as soon as the train has passed. This should mean a shorter wait for everyone using the crossing.

"Motts Lane and Cut Throat Lane crossings will be equipped with warning lights and alarms which will increase safety for users who just have to look and listen out for trains at the moment."

Additional copies of the leaflet are available from Railtrack on 0171 344 7100.
