Rose Lane Level Crossing

As part of the Transpennine Route Upgrade, we are proposing to replace three private railway crossings in the Church Fenton area – Rose Lane, Adamsons and Poulters – with a safer alternative.

Rose Lane level crossing

The Transpennine Route Upgrade will transform the railway between York, Leeds and Manchester to enable more frequent, more reliable, faster and greener trains – supporting economic growth in the North and delivering real benefits for passengers, communities and freight services along this vital rail artery.  

We are responsible for maintaining the railway network, and this includes making it as safe as possible for passengers and the public. Level crossings can pose a serious risk to users, so we want to create a safer way for people to cross to reduce the risk of any accidents.

Our proposals 

Our proposals include building a new highway bridge and road to maintain access to homes on Rose Lane and local farms, together with a new stepped footbridge for Rose Lane residents close to the existing one. 

We’ve been engaging with the land and homeowners in the area who will be impacted by the proposals, which helped shape the designs presented for consultation. 

We also carried out a public consultation with the local community between Monday 31 January and Friday 11 March 2022 to get their feedback on our plans.

Next steps

Following the consultation process, we will consider all the feedback received and aim to submit the final design for planning approval in Summer 2022.
