Volume 561: debated on Wednesday 24 April 2013

Detrunking of part of the A69

I am pleased to be able to present this petition on behalf of my constituents asking the House of Commons to urge the Department for Transport to examine the feasibility of the detrunking of the A69 from the roundabout at Brampton to junction 43 of the M6. The petitioners and I believe that that would make the road a great deal safer for all concerned, including those in the villages along the route, which includes a primary school. The petition has more than 1,600 signatories.

The petition states:

The Petition of County Councillor Nick Marriner,

Declares that the A69 should be detrunked from the roundabout at Brampton to Junction 43 of the M6 and rerouted along the A689 and that this will make the current A69 a safer road for the communities which live alongside it.

The Petitioner therefore requests that the House of Commons urge the Government works with Cumbria County Council to ensure this happens.

And the Petitioner remains, etc.


Mobility access to Goring and Streatley Station

I should like to present a petition from more than 1,000 local residents about the railway station at Goring in my constituency.

The petition states:

The Petition of residents of Goring and Streatley and the surrounding area,

Declares that the Petitioners are concerned about the provision of mobility access to Goring and Streatley station.

The Petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges the Government to support the installation of lifts at Goring and Streatley railway station when the station footbridge is rebuilt in 2013–14 as part of the track electrification programme, thus ensuring that mobility impaired passengers are able to have equal and step-free access to the trains that serve the station.

And the Petitioners remain, etc.
