A £50,000 early warning system, jointly funded by Railtrack and Cambridgeshire County Council, is to be installed on the Station Road rail bridge in Ely in an attempt to reduce the frequency of bridge strikes from tall vehicles. Infra red detectors will trigger warning signs when an overheight vehicle approaches the bridge, which is one of the most frequently struck rail overbridges in the UK.
