Kelvedon and Marks Tey get updated level crossings

New automatic barriers at Kelvedon’s Church Street level crossing and new pedestrian lights at Long Green footpath crossing at Marks Tey will be brought into operation over the weekend of 18/19 October.

The crossings are being updated as part of Railtrack’s £220 million project to install new signalling equipment between Liverpool Street and the Colchester area.

The old, manned crossing at Kelvedon is being replaced with automatic barriers with warning lights and alarms, whilst the footpath crossing at Marks Tey will also benefit from new warning lights and alarms.

Users’ guides, which explain how to use the new crossing, have been produced by Railtrack and will shortly be distributed to local homes and businesses.

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

"Kelvedon crossing will be operated by the approach of a train and as long as another train is not approaching from the opposite direction, barriers will rise as soon as the train has passed. This should mean a shorter wait for motorists and pedestrians using the crossing.

"Long Green crossing will be equipped with warning lights and alarms which will increase safety for users, who just have to look and listen for trains at the moment".
