Locals Protest At Wareham Over Changes To The Rail Crossing

Some genius planner has decided to ignore the needs of people who use a rail crossing everyday because they think they know better. Where do we get these people from?

There are plans to replace the level crossing at Wareham with a footbridge but protesters claim the crossing is safe and that their views are being ignored.

Local residents have pointed out that it is not just a footbridge but that it involves a walk of a quarter of a mile just to get over a ramp before they get to the south side. They say it will be bad for the station and bad for the historic town.

If planning is approved, then work on the footbridge could start as early as April 2018.
