Paynes Level Crossing (S17)

Network Rail have been working to reduce the risk that level crossings pose. The Paynes Level Crossing (S17) is located in the parish of Gislingham on Footpath 22 and it is proposed to close the level crossing, extinguishing Footpath 22 between Footpath 26 and Footpath 4, diverting users to the adjacent bridge to the north. On the western side of the railway, users would access the bridge via the existing footpath network. On the eastern side, a new 2m wide footpath would be created in the field margin between Footpath 22 and Footpath 21 (as shown on map).

Network Rail will be submitting this "Order for Suffolk" proposal during March 2017.
