Statement to Anglia tv on Blaxhall Crossing

6 February 2003
source Network Rail
type Written statement

London & South East

Safety is Network Rail’s first priority, without question. Level crossings have a hundred percent safety record when used correctly. It is only when the ‘green cross code’ of level crossings is abused that incidents happen. The crossing at Blaxhall, near Wickham Market was extensively damaged in the incident on 15 April 2002. Since then a Network Rail attendant has been manually operating the crossing, which has had temporary gates installed. This crossing is made to measure and involves many components, including signalling, lighting and power equipment. The new crossing will be reinstalled in a few months time.
