New level crossing software to cut waiting time

Thu, 13 Apr 2017

The Department of Infrastructure says new software controlling the level crossing in Ballasalla will save road users more than a minute.

The new system releases the barriers as soon as the steam train has passed, cutting around 60 to 70 seconds waiting each time the train goes past.

The previous set-up only saw the barriers raised once the train had travelled a certain distance beyond the crossing.

The new software was installed overnight earlier this week to minimise disruption, and will be installed at level crossings around the Island.
