The level crossings at Ings Road have a short life between re-rails, typically 2 years, due to excessive corrosion caused by road treatment products (salt, etc), coal dust and debris from abattoir delivery vehicles.
- Rails coated and delivered to site September 2002 – missing the scheduled re-railing.
- Coated rails stored in a lay-by between crossings – note that during this period they were partially buried with track ballast.
- Rails installed in Leeds-Doncaster Line crossing December 2003 and last inspected May 2005 with no evidence of rail corrosion.
- Rails installed in East Coast Main Line crossing April 2004 and last inspected March 2005 (together with the other crossing by Brian Whitney as part of the approval process) – no evidence of rail corrosion.
- Rails eventually removed from both crossings in 2010/2011 due reasons other than corrosion.
