Bill Cash MP receives Government Minister support for rail safety fencing at Barlaston and Wedgwood stations

Press release 22/09/09       

 
Following a fatality of a young man on the rail track in March this year and serious concerns raised by constituents, Bill Cash MP has received a brief letter today from a Minister at the Department of Transport, Paul Clark MP.
 
Cash said “The brief letter makes clear that whilst it is London Midland’s responsibility to resolve the matter of fencing at the stations, the Department of Transport has asked that they urgently take action on this matter.”
 
“This follows a number of meetings with local constituents, and also with Network Rail officials at the scene of a level crossing.
 
“My most recent correspondence with Network Rail demonstrated that both they and Her Majesty’s Inspector of Railways were willing to push for fencing but needed approval from the Department of Transport. What more approval can they need than a signed ministerial letter to me, asking that London Midland urgently take action to resolve this issue?
 
“I expect this to be done as soon as possible, as there has already been considerable delay in ensuring safety fencing alongside Barlaston and Wedgwood Stations and the surrounding vicinity up to the level crossing.”
