Proposals to close the Llanion level crossing at Pembroke Dock due to ‘visibility’ concerns putting trains, road users and pedestrians at risk have been outlined by Network Rail.

“As part of our commitment to maintain a safe and reliable railway for passengers, we are working on plans to fully close the Llanion level crossing,” stated Network Rail Wales and Boders’ community relations manager Rebecca Harvey.

“The visibility across the level crossing is poor and it is considered high risk for trains, road users and pedestrians who use it.

“Our plans would see the creation of a new road on the south side of the railway, via an extension to Hawkstone Road. Pedestrian access across the railway would be maintained at Pembroke Dock station or via the subway on Ferry Lane.”

A public drop-in event will be held on Tuesday, March 24, between 3.30 and 6.30 pm in the Pembroke Dock Town Council offices, at 28 Dimond Street, where Network Rail representatives will be on hand to discuss the plans and answer any questions. No appointment is necessary.
