Littleport Signal box
The signal box at Littleport with its level crossing gates and a signal be for the line was electrifled.
This box is set to close in 2021 when this line is to be controlled from Anglia Regional Operations Centre at Romford?

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.
This under bridge was closed in May 2020, till the summer, the sign says on the right.
Littleport station was being altered in 2020, I think for 12 car trains.
