Network Rail is continuing to gauge public opinion on its plans to close a number of level crossings.

A list of crossing points on the East Coast Mainline between London and Doncaster are included in the consultation, which started this month.

The majority are footpaths but there are some road crossings, including three at Holme, near Ramsey – known as Holme, Holme Lode and Conington North.

Among those on paths proposed for closure are Firbanks No.1 in Offord Cluny; Offord Gills; Love Lane, St Neots; and Abbots Ripton.

A series of public exhibitions have been planned and people are invited to go along and have their say.
