Foxton level crossing closure - the perfect opportunity for a Harston bypass
The GCP plans to bypass Foxton level crossing with either a tunnel or bridge by 2023. This will allow the train service to increase in frequency – something we support. But we are deeply concerned about the impact this will have on traffic through Harston, as the route becomes more attractive to drivers who currently avoid it due to the frequent and lengthy barrier closures.
We believe that a bypass to the south west of Foxton station – Route B below – could be extended to follow the train line, joining up with the M11 near where it crosses Hauxton Road.
