Level Crossing Closure at West Sleekburn (Marcheys House)

Following on from our track upgrade works in August along the line through Marchey House Level Crossing in West Sleekburn, we need to undertake works using a machine called a Tamper to make sure the new track is level. The location of the works area is shown below:

The work will happen overnight between the following dates and times:

From 10pm on Wednesday 20th Sept until 5.30am on Thursday 21st Sept

From 10pm on Thursday 21st Sept until 5.30am on Friday 22nd Sept

From 10pm on Monday 25th Sept until 5.30am on Tuesday 26th Sept

These works will form part of moving work site so will not be by your property for the full duration of the works. Where the teams are working though, the Tamper will be used and unfortunately this will be noisy. To limit noise during the works, where possible equipment will be turned off when not in use, and battery operated machinery will be used where possible. However, although these measures may limit noise, they will not remove it.

During the works, overnight road closures will be in place on Wansbeck Terrace where it crosses Marcheys House Level Crossing. A diversion for vehicles will be in place and this will be clearly signposted. A free shuttle bus will run for pedestrians during each evening and the timetable for each evening is shown below:
