Since the railway crossing closed at Suggitts Lane in 2019 for safety reasons, local residents have been campaigning to have some form of crossing reinstated.
After considerable effort on everyones part, proposals are now in place for a new, accessible footbridge to be built across the railway line at Suggitts Lane to reopen it for public access.
The funding has been agreed by Network Rail and the Department of Transport and work will be able to take place during 2021 with the footbridge opening later in the year.
THE PUBLIC CONSULTATION IS NOW OPEN
Please make sure you have your say.
