Is This The Most Dangerous Level Crossing In The Country?

Level crossings are generally a danger on railways. In East Anglia and Essex, there are a number that should have been removed years ago.

Buit surely the one described in this article from the Thurrock Gazette, must surely be the most dangerous of them all. What makes this one even more dangerous is that there is no alternative route, and sometimes emergency vehicles get stuck, waiting for a train.

When the London Gateway Port, is fully open, there will be regular mile-long freight trains passing this crossing.

I found out about this crossing on the BBC London News tonight. When I saw the report, I was surprised that no-one in authority had ordered Network Rail to do something about it.

I thought the level crossing in Lincoln was a disgrace, but this one is much more dangerous.
