Helpston Crossing Group
Network Rail has decided to postpone the project and will deal with the closures on an individual basis “as funds become available”. So the Helpston Crossing Group will wait until further news is received before updating this page further.
HCG’s Open Forum Events
On Friday 5th and Saturday 6th December over 58 people braved the frost to attend the Helpston Crossing Group’s Open Forum event in Helpston Village Hall. The purpose of the event was to raise awareness locally of the impact of Network Rail’s plans to close the five level crossings surrounding Helpston.
We have an on-line petition: 38degrees.org.uk/petitions/change-the-network-rail-crossing-closure-proposals but there will also be a paper based petition at the Open Forums should you wish to sign it.
Helpston Crossing Group is a representative group of villagers and Helpston Parish Council, working together to ensure that the entire village community is fully aware and informed of Network Rail’s plans to close five of the level crossings surrounding Helpston village
