The Rother District Council Planning Committee has approved the restoration of the heritage railway between Northbridge Street (Robertsbridge) and Junction Road (Bodiam). Concerns have been raised with regards to the impact of the level crossings on the local road network.
The planning committee that will decide the fate of the extension of the Rother Valley Railway will occur next week.
The planning decision to extend the Rother Valley railway line from its current limit of operation at Northbridge Street to Bodiam has been deferred to March. The completed line will join up the Rother Valley Railway line with the Kent and East Sussex Railway.
