Traffic is moving after a level crossing barrier that became stuck in Felixstowe was freed.

Beach Station Road in Felixstowe was blocked both ways between the A14 Port of Felixstowe Road junction and Langer Road while Walton Avenue was closed in both directions between Felixstowe Dock Gate One and Langer Road.

The closure was due to a level crossing failure.

A Network Rail spokesman confirmed the line is closed for engineering work.

  • As this line is only used by freight trains, which don't operate on a Sunday, what was the point of a road closure, when the placement of a 'police caution' sign would have sufficed?

On 23 June last year, the people of the United Kingdom voted to leave the European Union. As I have said before, that decision was no rejection of the values we share as fellow Europeans. Nor was it an attempt to do harm to the European Union or any of the remaining member states. On the contrary, the United Kingdom wants the European Union to succeed and prosper. Instead, the referendum was a vote to restore, as we see it, our national self-determination. We are leaving the European Union, but we are not leaving Europe – and we want to remain committed partners and allies to our friends across the continent.

Work is now underway on constructing a new pre-school building in Lavenham that should be open in time for the September intake.
