Bill Cash MP welcomes rail regulator’s response and demands London Midland and Government act on Barlaston and Wedgwood safety fencing

 Following ongoing correspondence to ensure rail safety fencing is installed at Barlaston and Wedgwood stations, Bill Cash MP said:

“I welcome a letter I received today from the Office of Rail Regulation stating that London Midland cannot prevent access at Barlaston and Wedgwood stations until they agree service level changes with the Department of Transport. We are urgently pushing for those discussions to be concluded. The safety fencing must be put up.
 
“I had already received a positive letter from Transport minister, Paul Clark, addressing this situation so I am hoping that the fencing can be erected soon.
 
“I have now written to London Midland and the Department for Transport, urging them to take forward their discussions on agreed service level changes so that we can have the necessary safety fencing at Barlaston and Wedgwood stations.”
