Soundproof Fencing (A50 Staffordshire)

Volume 508: debated on Wednesday 24 March 2010

It is my honour to present the following petition, which I strongly support.

The petition states:

The Petition of residents in Staffordshire regarding the failure of the Highways Agency to have provided the promised and effective soundproof fencing along the A50 running next to their properties,

Declares that the petitioners recognise the Highways Agency promised effective soundproof fencing along the A50, that the Agency’s plans for fencing was either not erected or where it was erected made little or no difference, that this has left a constant noise so that it is no longer possible to sit out in their gardens, or sleep in bedrooms closest to the A50, and which has left many with a poor quality of life.

The Petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges the Secretary of State for Transport to do all in his power to ensure that the Highways Agency deliver the promised soundproof fencing which runs along the Blythe Bridge area of the A50.

And the Petitioners remain, etc.
