A fault caused the railway barriers across the High Street in Lincoln to stay down for around three hours on Saturday night.

Motorists faced diversions from about 8pm until the crossing opened just before 11.30pm.

    They are down usually, so I wonder if anyone noticed. Now if they were stuck in the up position, that would really be newsworthy.

    Saturday night??? Strange...........it was Friday night myself and a few other vehicles were turned around and had to go another way

    Oops three and a half hours.

    It was 8.00pm until 11.30pm hardly the busiest time of the day even for a Saturday. Motorists had to follow diversions what via Brayford East or Portland St hardly a major problem. Pedestrians that know Lincoln would also know that you can cut down the side of Superdrug and come out on Brayford East. It was a minor inconvenience unless of course you were daft enough to stay behind the barrier for the full two and a half hours.

    Same old arguement, barriers stuck down, traffic chaos, here we go again..

    I'll bet the Railway enthusiasts still claim the barriers only held up traffic for a "Couple of minutes" :)
