Information wanted on crossing closures policy

The request was partially successful.

Dear Network Rail Limited,

On 21st January 2014 you published a press release stating:

'Network Rail has now reached its target, set in 2010, of closing 10% of Britain’s crossings – 750 in total – by April 2014, contributing to a reduction in the overall risk level crossings pose to the network by 25% ... Since 2010, Network Rail has invested £131m in a national level crossings improvement programme'

Related to this, please provide me with the following information:
-A list of the 750 closed crossings, with post codes, or other geo-location data (a map would be ideal)that will enable the whereabouts of the crossings to be identified, along with the date of each closure ;
-The policy or planning document from 2010 that announces the target of 750 closures and gives the rationale for the closure programme;
- A breakdown of where and on what exactly the £130 million referred to above was spent on.

Yours faithfully,

Paul Glink
