Buckinghamshire residents will have the opportunity to give their views on how railway crossing safety can be improved in the area from Quainton to Aylesbury by attending a public consultation event on Wednesday 10th December.
As part of the East West Rail project, Network Rail is undertaking a study looking at how to make the planned reinstated and upgraded railway between Aylesbury and Quainton safe for everyone to use.
Charles Hurst, Network Rail’s project manager for East West Rail, said: “Safety on and around the railway is a top priority for us. The East West Rail project will open up many new journey opportunities, but we want to make sure that the reinstated sections of railway are safe for everyone to use, which is why we are undertaking this study.
“So far, we have discussed our initial proposals with the local authority, landowners and ramblers, but we are keen to hear the wider community’s views. This event gives us the chance to share our initial plans with residents and invite them to give us the benefit of their local knowledge and experience.”
Details of the public consultation event are as follows:
Date: Wednesday 10 December
Time: Drop-in anytime between 5.00 and 8.00pm
Location: Quainton Church of England School, Lower Street, Quainton HP22 4BJ
