Buckinghamshire residents will have the opportunity to give their views on how railway crossing safety can be improved between Aylesbury and Princes Risborough at two public consultation events in January.
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 Princes Risborough, Aylesbury and Milton Keynes safer 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 and we want to make sure that the railway is safe for everyone to use”.
“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 series of public consultation events 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.”
