Smile RVR Planning permission granted!

Great news for the Rother Valley Railway and Kent & East Sussex Railway - planning permission has been granted for the rebuilding of the railway between Northbridge Street, Robertsbridge & Junction Road, near Bodiam. Once completed, this will fill in the 2 mile gap between the RVR's current limit of operations from Robertsbridge at Northbridge Street to Junction Road, which is 1/2 mile east of Bodiam - the most easterly point of the K&ESR.
There is a lot of work to do of course! I believe there are 3 level crossings to install plus bridges and embankments to be rebuilt before relaying the 2 miles of track, with all associated signalling etc.

Opposition from the local business community, according to the BBC News last night. They are not keen on the level crossing that will have to be installed across the busy A21 road.

However the local council are keen.
As they will be able to introduce speed control measures.
One other aspect of the scheme is the limits on operation at peak road traffic times.
