You asked

Please can you list the locations for me of any Sleeping Dog level-crossings? These are railway crossings that legally remain Public Rights of Way, but are no longer in regular use for various reasons. Many thanks.

We answered

Our ref: FOI-0530-1819/GH

Thank you for your request received by Transport for London (TfL) on 30 May 2018 asking for information about Sleeping Dog level-crossings.

Your request has been considered under the requirements of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 and our information access policy. I can confirm that we do hold some of the information you require.

Level crossing safety is the responsibility of the rail operator (e.g. Network Rail) and not TfL.  You may wish to contact Network Rail direct with your request, or you may find the following link useful:

We can advise however that there are no level crossings on the Transport for London Road Network (TLRN) with the exception of where the Croydon tramline passes over. We do not believe there are any with “sleeping dog” specifications.  

There is only one level crossing in inner London – the Charlton Lane level crossing but this is not on the Transport for London Road Network.  The level crossing at Lincoln Road in Enfield (again not on the TLRN) is closed to vehicles and this is a TfL Overground line – Enfield to Liverpool Street.

If this is not the information you are looking for, or if you are unable to access it for some reason, please do not hesitate to contact me.

If you are not satisfied with this response please see the attached information sheet for details of your right to appeal.

Yours sincerely
