I am happy to confirm that, in consultation with Marlborough District Council we propose to place a 9 m length restriction over the section of Vickerman Street from Watsons Road to State Highway 1. The signs are on order and will be installed when they arrive.

Transit New Zealand is fully supportive of any measures that will enhance level crossing safety and participated in the first meeting of the Rail-Road Level Crossing Safety Forum earlier this month.
