Road to reopen after railway crossing work

SPALDING’S Woolram Wygate is due to reopen to traffic on Monday after a six-week upgrade to the railway crossing.

The Network Rail project has involved bringing the crossing up to modern standards, including the replacement of the old gates with barriers.

Commissioning of the crossing is expected to be carried out this weekend before the road reopens.

Network Rail had come under fire for the length of the road closure, which followed hot on the heels of an earlier 12-week closure while junction improvements were carried out, but the company insists the work has been completed on schedule.
