What about the other crossing, on the B4059 Latteridge road?

Presumably converted to an open level crossing too as NR communication letter to residents state no barriers and as S&T remarked that his records show them as open crossings.

Pretty sure both the B4058 and 4059 have barriers, and Streetview confirms this. In one case the photo is from 2009 so that could have changed but I'm sure I've seen barriers there. Station Rd in Iron Acton doesn't have barriers and of course there are numerous footpath crossings.

Right, just to firmly draw a line under this.

The pictures you have posted were taken by me personally, on the 25th April 2017.

The barriers, motors and lights have been replaced on the Iron Acton Bypass crossing and white Pickett style fencing erected around the new motors.

The lights have been replaced on both the Latteridge and Iron Acton Station Road crossing.

So in summary, no barriers have been removed.

From south Glos council Street Care Department

From Monday 26 November, the Tytherington to Yate freight line will reopen

Please be aware that from this date, the line is expected to have one train per day carrying materials from Tytherington Quarry to Avonmouth.
Whilst the reopening of the Tytherington line is good news the only train I can find out of there at the time of writing this is one, which does not serve Avonmouth:

Could be there is a missing path I suppose.

Appears to be 660K sat at Parkway waiting to go to Tytherington at present from Arc, good to see the route back in use.

This one ran - http://www.realtimetrains.co.uk/train/H42133/2018/11/29/advanced

There is a train scheduled for Willesden every morning next week. I doubt that any will actually run as there is no mention of any train inbound.

If I get my way, there will be trains to Thornbury again?.
