Make Ufton Nervet Level Crossing Safer

This petition had 146 supporters

At Ufton Nervet crossing there have been 8 deaths on this crossing in recent years and many more near misses. As it stands there is only a half width barrier, this means that some pedestrians and vehicles will try to pass around the barrier endangering both themselves and the train.

In 2004 the Ufton Nervet rail crash disaster killed 7 and again this year in May another person died, we must get Network Rail to commit to improving this precarious situation.

To solve this problem and ensure that it does not happen again we propose a full width barrier that would stop people going around the barriers is installed. If CCTV is installed it would be linked to the signal box so that the operator can check whether the crossing is clear before dropping the barriers. Therefore, if there is a problem, they can alert the train driver and take action.
