The Corondale and Finch Close level crossings in Worle have had their access improved from both sides, their entrance widened, overgrown vegetation cut back, and gates moved closer to the tracks to reduce crossing time.

Campaign group The Movement successfully rallied for changes to be made at the crossings.

A meeting was held in May between The Movement, Network Rail, North Somerset Council, and Persimmon Homes to discuss and plan the short-term response to the crossings. They will be replaced and renewed with safer ones as a temporary measure until a footbridge is built. Network Rail estimates the cost of a footbridge, which is planned to be implemented in 2024, will be £4.4million.
