Network Rail has announced that it has successfully completed a £5.5m upgrade of the level crossing on Station Road in Carnoustie.
Work completed has included the replacement of the two barriers with 4 shorter ones, replacement and enhancement of signalling equipment and renewal of the level crossing surface.
Due to the nature of the work, this upgrade could only be delivered by closing the crossing for two extended periods and putting road diversions in place.
During two eight-day road closures and weekend closures of the line between Dundee and Aberdeen, engineers renewed the signalling system and infrastructure at the crossing adjacent to the town’s station as well as upgrading the road surface over the tracks.
Work at Carnoustie was part of a £9m package of enhancements that Network Rail engineers delivered between Aberdeen and Dundee over six weekends in February and March.
What did the officials say?
Lisa McKenna, Network Rail’s project manager for the upgrade, said:
We understand that the closure of the crossing for two prolonged periods has been inconvenient for the local community however, this was the only way in which we could deliver the work required safely and efficiently.
“This work will further improve the safety of both road and rail traffic and also enhance the reliability of the railway on the busy east coast main line. We are grateful for the patience of the local community while we carried out this important work.
