And some locals aren't happy...

It doesn't affect me as I live further away from it, but I can see their point.

Can NR not erect a pedestrian bridge to replace the crossing?

The report covers this option thus:

'The option of an additional pedestrian footbridge was considered, but as it would need to be fully accessible to comply with disability discrimination laws, we would not have enough land on which to site the structure.'

I don't know the geographical details of the location but local residents are not exactly un-renowned for overstating the case. At any rate NR say they are still considering options and even when they have made their minds up on the best option there will be a 12-week consultation process. So giving this an iota of thought at the moment is really a bit premature.
