Save The Public Right Of Way To The Staines Moor Land

Created October 16, 2013 by Whatford


We are trying to save the public right of way on to staines moorlands, which has been in place for decades. The issue of safety could be resolved by the installation of a safety gates on the crossing, but in an attempt to save funds, network rail are reluctant to put these in place and are favouring closure. Which there for means the main point of access would be at the top of moor lane, which is already terribly congested with parked cars and will only become worse when dog walkers and moor users are forced to park there too. Please help save our right of way to one of the few green spaces left within the m25 area.

    Because the right of way needs to be kept.

    This is another example of the increasing trend to a nanny state. Access across the moorland here dates back over a thousand years, and for the sake of a few thousand pounds, Railtrack think they have the right to block the access to what is common land. Poor show Railtrack!

    I support the need to retaining the right of way.

    this crossing is safe and should never have been closed

  6. Annabel Foreman UNITED STATES

    Keep the right of way. The crossing was made safe, keep it open. Closing it is just an excuse for Network Rail not to maintain it’s safety. If it was such an unsafe crossing why was it not closed straight after the accident six years before. The alternative route to the moor over the bridge is hazardous.
