  1. Notification of works – Gwinear Road Level Crossing – Remediation

    / Leave a comment
    This is to notify you of an upcoming project at Gwinear Road Level Crossing by Network Rail. Network Rail is planning to undertake some works to resolve issues they have had in the past with vehicles overhanging the crossing due to the close proximity of a right hand turn into Riviera Produce. This work is designed to remove the speed restriction that has been in place for a number of years on all trains entering / leaving Cornwall on the Main Line which will reduce train journey times. The works are scheduled to commence towards the end of October with a full road closure being in place at the level crossing from 07/11/2016 to 08/12/2016. These works will involve the movement of the access to Riviera Produce further away from the level crossing, the re-profiling of the road to prevent towing vehicles / caravans from grounding as they cross the railway and improvements to the drainage infrastructure. Network Rail will also be replacing the level crossing itself and improving the quality of the track. The works notice is publically visible on the website (click here for link roadworks )and a diversion route will be added to this same website by Cornwall Council nearer the time and locally signed by Network Rail during the closure. The job is noted as ‘delays likely’ you can view the diversion route by clicking the following link:- gwinear level crossing - diversion route gwiner-road-level-crossing-road-closure-plan_3a24eae994
