Council approve closure of Lincoln railway crossing over misuse
Plans to close the Ballast Hole pedestrian railway crossing, off Moorland Way, in Lincoln, could now go ahead after Lincolnshire County Council agreed to publish an order to divert the public right of way.
Network Rail made an application to shut the walkway after concerns about misuse by the public.
The council's Planning and Regulation Committee accepted the proposals at a meeting on October 7.
A 28-day public consultation is now set to take place to give people the chance to object to the plans.

If objections are received, the application will go to Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs to make a decision.
However, if there is not objection, the county council will confirm the closure of the crossing.
People are being asked to use a new path that has been installed next to the railway line and runs up to the Doddington Road level crossing.
Pedestrians can then use an existing public footpath to access the Hartsholme Country Park area.
