West Anglia Route Improvement – Brimsdown Station – 22nd February 2017

I took these pictures at Brimsdown station.

This Google Map shows a closeup of the station.

  • The level crossing is a real bottleneck and has been since the 1960s, when I used it to go to work.
  • I was at the station for about thirty minutes and in that time around ten fast trains roared through, so the barriers were more closed than open.
  • The space for the tracks is narrow, but there’s nothing of merit in the way.
  • There is a poor subway, but no footbridge.

Meridian Way was built to provide an alternative route, but drivers want to use the crossing.

It is another station and level crossing, that might be improved using a Level Crossing Replacement Station.
