 low road under bridge at Littleport to use while the gates are closed

Like Ely this crossing near the station has a low road under bridge for cars and small vans only to use while the gates are closed, The signal box is to the right on the other side of the level crossing. There is only 8ft 3'' of headroom.

The Ely to Kings railway in Cambridgeshire line starts at Ely North Junction at the small hamlet of Queen Adelaide were the line heads out into the fens alongside the river Ouse. The the line has overhead wires that is electrified at 25 kV AC. The first station along this line is Littleport which is a large village.Class 365 EMUs are used on most of the trains from Kings Lynn to Ely Cambridge and to London Kings Cross, most trains stop at Littleport. There are just 2 platforms and a signal box left at Littleport.

 The Department for Transport has given the go ahead (2014?) to upgrade the Ely North Junctions. The existing two single track leads onto the Kings Lynn and Norwich lines will be doubled. The signaling at these junctions is also be upgraded. This will help to give more trains to Kings Lynn, which means more at Littleport
