Safety stepped up at level crossings in Woodbridge

Three Woodbridge level crossings on the East Suffolk line have been fitted with new technology to make them safer and reduce the risk of accidents.
The crossings in Tide Mill Way and Ferry Lane have been fitted with full barriers which cover both sides of the road and prevent vehicles from weaving around them.
They have also been fitted with obstacle detection technology which automatically detects anything that may be obstructing the crossings, such as cars or a pedestrian.
At the crossing in Jetty Avenue, miniature stop lights and an audible warning system have been installed which give the green light when it is safe to cross.
The works started by Network Rail contractors in September last year.
