In the second half of 2018, a 9.5-mile (15.3 km) stretch of line between Howden and Hessle had all its semaphore signalling and signal boxes decommissioned in favour of digital control overseen by the Rail Operating Centre in York. One of the crossing boxes at Crabley Creek has remained operational and worked by a Network Rail representative as the original deeds for the acquisition of the land by the railway company dictated that as long as the crossing existed, it should be manned. Most of the boxes were either boarded up or demolished though those at Melton Lane and Gilberdyke junction were retained as welfare facilities for railway workers.
