Network Rail Fight

Essex Area Update


Network Rail Fight. We need your help.

Hi Everyone,

As you will all be aware Network Rail intend to close 132 foot crossings in East Anglia. The Ramblers are taking steps to fight this and the details of this can be found on our website.

One of the steps is a petition open to anyone. It is this that I write to you to ask for your help. Please not only fill in the petition yourself but ask any one you know with an interest in walking to do the same.

It is simple to do but the effort may result in stopping Network. They care little about local people or communities. They are also happy to push walkers on to busy roads. We need to stop this. Please help.

The petition can be found on the Essex Area Ramblers website or through

Alan Goffee
