Southern Counties Benefit from New Footpath Developments

Southern Counties Benefit from New Footpath Developments

The counties of Essex and Suffolk located in the southern extremities of the United Kingdom will be able to hugely benefit from a refurbishment program of developing new and better footpath levels along the train station level crossings of those areas. As part of National Rail’s intention to improve the conditions of railway systems all across the country, this change is welcomed by the project managers of Network Rail as a fantastic new way of ensuring the improved safety of passengers in the vicinity of the station. This initiative to improve the level crossings in this particular area of the country has arisen as a result of the fact that the trains in those southern regions are particularly fast and it is therefore a top priority for station managers to ensure the safety of passengers as well as pedestrians traveling on foot and waiting for the trains at the level crossings.

Indeed, stations such as Witham, which will witness some of these important refurbishments, can have trains passing through its quarters at distance speeds of more than 100 miles per hour. The crossings themselves will be made to fit better in a straight line and a clearer path so that commuters and those traveling on the crossing can actually see where it is in order to avoid the confusion that sometimes occurs along the stations of Bentley, Trimley St Martin, Levington, Witham, Deadham and Weeley in the counties of Suffolk and Essex.

The upgrade plans to the footpath crossings of those particular stations will result in the implementation of better colored lines of greater visibility as well as more fencing methods to ensure that commuters and passengers travelling to and from the crossing can actually see exactly where they are going in the hope that this will improve safety methods for all involved in the southern areas of those particular stations.
