Network Rail will be carrying out a programme of works at Gobowen Level Crossing starting on Wednesday 12 January 2022.

Work will include the installation of new level crossing operating equipment, and supply of new cabling to the signal box.

For safety purposes it has been agreed that the works will be completed using a full road closure and two-way temporary traffic signals.

Station Road will be closed continuously from Wednesday 12 January to Monday 17 January, with temporary traffic signals in use on Tuesday 18 January and Wednesday 19 January subject to scheme progress.

Whilst the road is closed traffic will be diverted via a signed diversion route, and access will be maintained to properties at all times either side of the closure.

Work will be carried by Kier on behalf of Network Rail.

Meanwhile, Scottish Power will be closing Old Whittington Road, Gobowen, continuously from Monday 24 January to Friday 4 February.

Affected residents and businesses will be notified, and advance warning signs will be erected on site two weeks prior to the works starting.
