Pig Leg crossing improvements
From Monday 12 September to Friday 23 September improvement works will be carried out at Pig Leg Crossing. The pedestrian crossing will be closed from Monday 12 September to Wednesday 21 September, and the line will be closed in the morning of Sunday 18 September, while we complete these works.
The improvements will benefit the safety of pedestrians by installing modern crossing alert systems.
The Island Line railway on the Isle of Wight operates between Ryde Pier Head and Shanklin, serving Smallbrook Junction, Brading, Sandown and Lake stations along the way.
This beautiful island lies just off England’s south coast and less than 2 hours from London Waterloo across the stunning waters of the Solent. Now a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve (one of only six in the UK), the island is recognised as one of the best places in the world to explore the sustainable way people interact with their natural environment.
There is a wealth of attractions and things to do on the Isle of Wight all year round: stunning beaches and harbours, wonderful food, festivals, dinosaur walks and museums. And, of course, the Isle of Wight Steam Railway.
