Under "The wider picture - related rail, public and other transport issues"

I think it might be set to read only, the description on the home page view suggests it is awaiting splitting or alteration into two other subjects.

The subject of splitting / merging topics (which is done purely in the interests of clarity and ease of future reference) was touched upon during our Coffee Shop planning meeting in Westbury today.

Just catching up with this particular topic, paul7755 has described exactly why there is no option to start a new topic on this particular board: any new topics may be started on either of the new boards.

"Level crossings are safe, unless they are used in an unsafe manner."  Discuss.
