There was a problem last year with the level crossing barriers at Sandy Lane in Yarnton in Oxfordshire where a man died on Wednesday.
An 85-year-old man killed when a train hit a car at the Yarnton level crossing in Oxfordshire has been named as Thomas Pizzey from Banbury.
Network Rail is to shut the Ufton Nervet level crossing where a fatal crash led to seven deaths in November 2004. A bridge will replace it.
The news that Network Rail wants to close a level crossing where seven people died in a crash has been welcomed by the local community.
