  10. Rail crossing 'could be replaced by flyover'

    Stefan Pidluznyj

    Local Democracy Reporter

    Rail journey times between Nottingham and Lincoln may be reduced by removing a crossing at Newark, a report suggests.

    Flat crossing at Newark

    The study, by Network Rail, proposes removing the Newark Flat Crossing and replacing it with a flyover.

    Currently, any increase in east-west train services is limited by the crossing with the East Coast Mainline.

    This means trains have to wait for each other, costing time and capacity.

    The report states that the crossing is an "outdated piece of infrastructure" but removing it would be "very costly" and involve a "complex engineering task".

    Any upgrades are likely to be only made in the 2030s once HS2 has been completed.
