As part of the Transpennine Route Upgrade, we're proposing to close Copmanthorpe level crossing

We are responsible for maintaining the railway network, which includes making it as safe as possible for passengers and the public. As we are proposing to increase the speed that trains currently run on the track next to Copmanthorpe village, we want to close Copmanthorpe level crossing and replace it with a safer, alternative way to cross the railway.


Level crossings can pose a serious risk to members of the public; therefore, we want to reduce the risk of an accident and create a safer way for the public to cross.

Public consultation

We would like to get the views of users of the level crossing and lineside neighbours on the closure of the crossing and our two proposed alternative options. This will help us to identify the best possible solution, while minimising disruption.
