How does Helpston Level Crossing Work?
When you're waiting at one of the level crossings in our area, have you ever spared a thought about how they work?
The likes of Helpston, Tallington, Greatford, Lolham, Maxey and Woodcroft level crossings are all controlled from Helpston Signal Box by a team of signallers working 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, to ensure the safety of both road users and the railway.
Between 300 and 350 trains a day, going to a variety of destinations including London, Leeds, Edinburgh, Liverpool, Birmingham, Hull, Bradford, Sunderland, Norwich and Stansted Airport, cross Glinton Road at Helpston Level Crossing.
