Bill Cash MP welcomes London Midland’s rail safety fencing but questions adequacy

Press release 13/11/09

 Following ongoing correspondence to ensure rail safety fencing is installed at Barlaston and Wedgwood stations, Bill Cash MP said:
 
 “After several meetings and ongoing correspondence with the relevant authorities, I welcome London Midland’s letter to me stating that they take all safety matters extremely seriously and they can no confirm that they have fenced off the areas in question.”
 
 “At the same time, I would have to question the adequacy of the measures they have put in place. I am told the fencing is of poor quality with wooden struts acting as a simple barrier to prevent people from walking on to the trackside.
 
 “This needs to be investigated further because I originally called for safety fencing on the basis that it really must ensure the safety of constituents and those passing through our area.”
