1 Lincoln Footbridges Stewart Bewick -22 nd September 2014
2 Lincoln Crossings – The Problem Lincoln city centre is divided by two level crossings. They are there to protect safety but we know they cause disruption and can be frustrating. Most people use the crossings properly but we regularly see people rushing across them once the warnings have started, running around the lowering barriers or even climbing over them, putting themselves at risk.. The misuse at these crossings needs to be urgently addressed. We are consulting city partners and the public to find designs that reduce risk and inconvenience by separating rail and pedestrian traffic by providing new pedestrian connections across the city.
3 Safety risk is posed by misuse of the level crossings, not the technical design Incidents of misuse of the Lincoln Level Crossings are of significant concern, Our aim is to; – Improve the safety of the public – Improve the safety of the railway Level Crossings – Safety Risks
