Longton Railway Bridge

Volume 472: debated on Tuesday 4 March 2008

18. To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what recent discussions she has had with Network Rail on repainting Longton railway bridge. (190991)

None. This is an operational matter for Network Rail. Network Rail informs me that it is currently discussing with Stoke-on-Trent city council whether the development and implementation of an aesthetic painting scheme for Longton viaduct can be included in its structures maintenance programme for 2008-09. A decision will be made later this year.
