The main points are:
➡ The level crossing may now be able to remain open for traffic
➡ A new underpass or bridge for pedestrians there is a possibility
➡ A road bridge for traffic or a traffic underpass on London Road is ruled out
➡ A new road bridge crossing (that could be lifted into position) over a suitable route to the south or east of the existing crossing may be a possibility
➡ A detailed proposal for consultation will not be put forward until next year
