Station Road in Stevenston to close for level crossing work

Region & Route:Scotland's Railway: Scotland[1]

Network Rail will carry out vital survey work next week to assess the condition of the level crossing surface at Station Road in Stevenston. Engineers will use the survey to help plan future improvement works, if required, to keep the crossing safe and reliable to rail passengers, motorists, cyclists and pedestrians. The crossing will be closed between 22:00hrs on Saturday 23 March and 07:30hrs on Sunday 24 March and then again from 22:00hrs on Sunday to 05:30hrs on Monday 25 March while work is ongoing.

Vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians will not be able to use the crossing during that time and will be diverted via Caledonian Road and Main Street to Townhead Street and vice versa. Kayleigh Waterfall, scheme project manager for Network Rail, said: "The planned work at Stevenston level crossing is essential to maintaining a safe and reliable railway in the area. "While we appreciate that the short-term impact of this work is inconvenient, the long-term benefit is that it will minimise disruption for both passengers and pedestrians in the future.

"Our thanks go to the community for their patience and understanding while we complete this work." Network Rail is working closely with local stakeholders and North Ayrshire Council to minimise the duration of the closure. If anyone has any questions in relation to the work, they can call Network Rail's 24-hr helpline on 03457 11 41 41 or email via our website[2]

We own, operate and develop Britain's railway infrastructure; that's 20,000 miles of track[3], 30,000 bridges, tunnels and viaducts[4] and the thousands of signals[5], level crossings and stations.

We run 20 of the UK's largest stations[6] while all the others, over 2,500, are run by the country's train operating companies[7]. Usually, there are almost five million journeys made in the UK and over 600 freight trains run on the network. People depend on Britain's railway for their daily commute, to visit friends and loved ones and to get them home safe every day.

Our role is to deliver a safe and reliable railway[8], so we carefully manage and deliver thousands of projects every year that form part of the multi-billion pound Railway Upgrade Plan[9], to grow and expand the nation's railway network to respond to the tremendous growth and demand the railway has experienced - a doubling of passenger journeys over the past 20 years.
