A public inquiry into the proposed closure of a railway foot crossing in Newmarket has been paused and will resume in May.
Network Rail proposals to close or downgrade 24 crossings in Suffolk are currently being heard in the six-week inquiry, which has been held at different venues in the county.
Plans to shut Newmarket’s Weatherby crossing, which links Willow Crescent and Granary Road, close to the football club, were heard on Tuesday and Wednesday at Memorial Hall in the town.
Residents and local councillors have raised concerns that the Weatherby crossing is the only walkway linking the north side and south side of Newmarket.
The Weatherby crossing case was not completed over two days and has now been paused to resume on May 1 at a venue to be confirmed.
