Anger as Network Rail name day for closure of level crossing in Grays

LABOUR’S Polly Billington has slammed Network Rail’s plans to close the level crossing along Grays high street on the 25th of April. She said, “Network Rail have not listened to the people of Thurrock”.

Polly has been out in Grays speaking to local businesses and residents who will be affected by changes. She went on to say, “ I’ve spoken to elderly and parents with prams at St Peters and St Pauls Church who rely on the crossing. Not everyone can use the footbridge. Last week I broke my foot and am now on crutches. If the crossing was not here I would be completely cut off from the high street.”

I will be writing to the Minister for Transport expressing the views of local people I’ve spoken and urging him to keep the crossing open.
