PROW – Copmanthorpe Level Crossing Closure, proposed diversion of Public Footpath Copmanthorpe No2
17/05/2022 - PROW – Copmathorpe Level Crossing Closure, proposed diversion of Public Footpath Copmathorpe No2
i. Rejected Network Rail’s application to divert the footpath via a stepped footbridge at Beckett’s Crossing.
Reason: As the proposed footbridge would not provide provisions to allow disabled pedestrians to use the crossing. The footbridge proposal being unlight and enclosed was also considered to be an unsafe crossing particularly at night.
