Disrepair Of Railway Bridges

EDM number 44 in 2001-02, proposed by Brian Iddon on 27/06/2001.

That this House notes that Railtrack purchased their business apparently without a full understanding of their assets and liabilities; notes that railway bridges all over the country are now being closed or having their use restricted as a result; notes that some closures are putting lives at risk, such as that at Green Lane, Bolton, which lies on a main access route to the Royal Bolton Hospital and is expected to be closed for up to three years; requests Railtrack to repair those affected bridges which are causing the most disruption as a matter or urgency; and asks Her Majesty's Government to assess the scale of the problem and enter into a dialogue with Railtrack in order to pursuade them to deal with this emerging situation.

This motion has been signed by a total of 43 MPs.
