Network Rail has announced that work to improve a railway level crossing in Lincolnshire will start next month to make sure it can carry on operating reliably for years to come.
Engineers will be replacing the old barrier gates with modern ones at Swineshead level crossing near Boston.
Installing new level crossing barriers will create a more resilient railway.
Network Rail is taking extra precautions in response to the Coronavirus outbreak.
The work at Swineshead level crossing will take place between Thursday, 9 April and Monday, 13 April and it will not impact on train services.
During the work, motorists, cyclists and pedestrians will not be able to use the crossing and there will be a temporary road closure in place. There will be a fully sign posted diversionary route for motorists.
What did the officials say?
Vinny Briggs, Route Level Crossing Manager for Network Rail, said:
“This is really important work to modernise Swineshead level crossing, and the new barriers will make sure it remains fit for purpose.
“They will also improve the reliability of the level crossing, and therefore, help to reduce delays on the railway.
“We are working hard to minimise any disruption whilst this work takes place and would like to thank all those impacted for their patience.”
