Network Rail has announced its preferred option for replacing the level crossing in Ufton Nervet where seven people died in an accident in 2004.
The crossing is due to be renewed and the rail firm has studied the feasibility of the three options available including replacing the crossing with a road bridge, an underpass or installing full-barriers. The company's preferred choice is to replace the level crossing with a bridge.
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.
