With new track and sleepers installed on the Dartmoor Line back in May, Network Rail are now looking to renew six level crossings on the line.

Planning permission has now been granted for the new GSM-R masts (the railway’s mobile communications system) and work is expected to start on these at some point during August.
Valentina Oncescu, Network Rail Project Manager, said: “We are pleased with the progress our teams are continuing to make and upgrading the level crossings is the next stage of work as we look to reopen the Dartmoor Line by the end of this year.
“Understandably, people will have been used to using the level crossings to pass over the Dartmoor Line with no trains running. However, as we move towards the return of regular passenger services it is imperative we upgrade these level crossings to ensure people can safely cross the railway.
“We look forward to seeing as many people as possible at our open event to discuss these improvements as well as the other aspects of work we are continuing to progress with.”
