Bosses at the Welshpool and Llanfair Light Railway have been told that £100,000 must be raised in order for automatic barriers to be installed, after an investigation by the Office of the Rail Regulator (ORR).

It is the kind of installation that may prompt businesses to fit new warning signs, with bosses being told that the railway could be stopped from running its rolling stock across public roads if barriers are not installed by the end of this year, reports the Shropshire Star.

A representative for the railway told the newspaper: "We have obviously been made aware of what needs to be done to improve the health and safety of the light railway and are currently looking to find what will need to be done to improve the level crossings."

This news comes after a report by the Echo revealed Southend Council's Liberal Democrat leader Graham Longley's negative opinion of safety signs located on the area's seafront.

He described their position as "questionable".ADNFCR-2754-ID-801257157-ADNFCR
