Level crossings are relatively unusual in London, but the line from Clapham Junction to Richmond is characterised by a run of several. Plans to use this line for a fast link to Heathrow foundered repeatedly on this fact: increased use of the line would mean these gates were closed every few minutes, immobilising traffic, whilst replacing them with bridges in this low-lying terrain would mean many residents' view out of the front door would be of the side of a ramp carrying the road over the railway.
