Ten years have passed since the tragedy of the rail crash at Ufton Nervet. There have been further tragedies at the same location and so far no change to the level crossing.
I have kept it alive in my thoughts and have regularly pressed for action to make the crossing safer. The railway has for a long time said they wish to solve it by building a bridge over the tracks. They have confirmed this again and are now pressing on with plans to acquire land and putting forward a proper project.
I will keep up the pressure for them to do as they promise. They do need to take suitable action to improve the safety of this location. I regret that they have still not taken other actions to improve it pending their bridge.
