Engineers will be replacing the old barriers with new, modern ones at Sutton Forest level crossing, which the company says will create a more resilient railway, help to reduce delays to services and mean that the level crossing remains fit for purpose.
The work is set to take place between Monday, May 11 and Monday, May 18.
During this time, motorists, cyclists and pedestrians will not be able to use the crossing, and there will be a temporary road closure in place.
There will be a fully sign posted diversionary route for motorists. The work to replace the level crossing barriers will not impact on train services, the company said.
Network Rail is urging passengers to continue following Government guidelines and only travel if they have to.
Vinny Briggs, route level crossing manager, said: “This work to improve Sutton Forest level crossing is essential so that it can continue operating safely and reliably in the future.
“Installing the new, modern barriers will help to reduce delays on the railway, meaning vital services can continue running reliably.
“We are working hard to minimise any disruption whilst this important work is carried out and would like to thank all those impacted for their patience.”
