Network Rail is to carry out repairs to railway bridges in Rosendale Road and Croxted Road early next year, to prevent trains from having to operate at reduced speed. This will cause some traffic disruption. There will be half-road closures and traffic lights in Rosendale Road between 29 April and 03 May and in Croxted Road between 07 May and the 10 May while works are carried out to the bridges. There will also be some footpath closures in Croxted Road.
Network Rail have promised that one footpath will remain open at all times and that they will arrange safe crossing points and access to premises. Some surveying work has already begun in both roads. Network Rail will be holding public information meetings on Thursday 7th November at All Saints Church, Lovelace Road 4:00 – 7:00pm and at the Montessori School on Thursday 14th November, 4:00 – 7:00pm.
