Local Level Crossing Closure Plans

Lolham Bridges crossingThe proposals are:

  • Close the Helpston level crossing in Glinton Road & build a new road bridge;
  • Close Lolham’s level crossing and provide a footbridge as replacement to the crossing and nearby rail footpath;
  • Replace the level crossing in Maxey Road, Helpston, and provide a bridleway.
  • At Tallington the plans are to close the crossing and build a new road bridge in one of two places.

All these plans will have a knock-on effect on the villages of Barnack, Ufford, Bainton and Ashton with the potential to have greatly increased traffic. It is important that villagers make their views known on these proposals.
