Bedlington South Level Crossing Closure - 29th Dec to 8th Jan

The level crossing at Bedlington South (over the line at Station Road) will be closed to road traffic from 10pm on Friday 29th December until 5am on Monday 8th January to allow for the level crossing equipment to be renewed. The diversionary route via Melrose Terrace, B1331, A1147 & St John's Road will be clearly signposted.



Pedestrians and cyclists will still be able to use the level crossing and staff will be located at each side of the level crossing to allow pedestrians and cyclists to cross the line safely.
