Channel Tunnel Freight Trains

EDM number 416 in 1993-94, proposed by Clive Soley on 24/01/1994.

That this House rejects British Rail's plans to route all the nation's Channel Tunnel freight trains on heavily congested lines through London; calls on the Government to support the use of the North Downs Link railway line as a Rail M25 for Channel Tunnel freight trains; believes that the use of the North Downs Link would give freight trains fast and unobstructed access to Britain's industrial heartlands and would be of particular benefit to the West of England and South Wales, providing a direct rail link for passenger and freight trains from mainland Europe to the West of England and South Wales, and calls upon the Government to extend the provisions of the draft noise regulation standards for new railways to protect not only residents living next to new railway lines, but also existing lines which are subject to significant intensification of traffic.

This motion has been signed by a total of 56 MPs.
