Motorists are being warned of delays in a north Suffolk town this lunchtime after a level crossing failed again.
Brandon's ongoing problems with its railway crossing have struck again, causing traffic jams.
As reported, faults with the newly-automated crossing have been causing major traffic concerns in the town, which already suffers from severe congestion problems at peak times, and on the approach road.
West Suffolk MP Matthew Hancock and Elizabeth Truss, MP for South West Norfolk held a public meeting on June 7 with Network Rail to discuss the issue.
Since then, Network Rail has written to the MPs, confirming the level crossing will be fixed. Network Rail is awaiting approval from the Office of Rail Regulation (ORR), which closely regulates any changes to level crossings.

In the letter Network Rail also confirmed it would offer to fund a replacement bridge across the railway as part of a future relief road for the town so the level crossing would no longer be needed.
