The Network Rail has confirmed that new barriers will be installed at a level crossing near Henley-on-Thames, South Oxfordshire. The crossing located in Shiplake is due to have the new barriers within the next six months. The Network Rail originally agreed to install the automated barriers by the end of the summer at the request of the Parish Council. The decision to install them came after the council campaigned for them over the last two years, which was encouraged by a number of accidents. The barriers are hoping to ensure safety for pedestrians and, thanks to a new technology, they can be installed without making major changes to the crossing itself. The level crossing is currently relying on LED lights to warn drivers that a train is coming.
