Crossing worry
I read with interest news of the £2.4m investment to rail services (All Aboard For Boost To Business, Advertiser, May 14) that will bring a boost to business in Newark. This will increase the number of passenger trains on the Midland Line using Castle Station.

This I agree will bring much-needed business to the town and enable passengers to use this enhanced service that will bring rail travel into the 21st Century for the town, all as our Member of Parliament stated.

My only concern is the increased traffic congestion that will inevitably be caused by the more regular closing of the railway safety barriers.

Added to this, there will no doubt be a detrimental effect to ambulance travel times to King’s Mill Hospital, Sutton-in-Ashfield.
