People are being urged to avoid trying to access the Dartmoor Line as trains operating are expected to increase from Monday 20th September.
Work is progressing on the Dartmoor Line ahead of reopening by the end of the year.
The latest phase of work on the 14-mile line will involve test trains to test out the newly laid track, which was completed in May.
The increase in operations will mean that the two pedestrian crossings will be closed for safety reasons.
The four user-worked crossings on the line will remain open and are only accessible by authorised farmers.
Engineers are continuing with the remaining work on the Dartmoor Line, which includes installing GSM-R masts for communications, drainage, and fencing work, which is all part of the project announced in March.
Christian Irwin, Network Rail’s industry programme director, said:“As we enter this next phase of work to reopen the Dartmoor Line, we are urging people to not attempt to cross the railway for both their own safety and the safety of those working on the line and operating the trains.
“From next week, there is going to be a significant increase in train activity on the line and the pedestrian level crossings will be closed.
“This is an exciting period for us and we want to ensure the local community continues to stay safe as we continue to work hard to reopen the Dartmoor Line by the end of the year.”
