The barriers at the level crossing will be upgraded from the 29th of July.
Some of the controlling equipment will also be upgraded in the project.
While the train services will not be affected by the work, a section of Rearsby Lane will be closed from 22:00 on Thursday 29 July until 12:00 on Saturday 7 August.
A signed diversion route will be in place for drivers while the road is closed.
Similar upgrade work was carried out recently at Broome Lane level crossing.
Vinny Briggs, Route Level Crossing Manager for Network Rail, said: “We’re upgrading the barriers at Rearsby level crossing to make sure it remains reliable for train services and for drivers, cyclists and pedestrians.
“We’ve carefully planned the project to minimise disruption as much as possible and we want to thank residents and businesses in the community for their patience whilst this vital work takes place.”
