Motion text

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.
