Motion text

That this House notes that the implementation of the Crewe to Shrewsbury modular signalling scheme has been beset with problems causing its delay; is deeply concerned that barriers on the currently manned level crossings have not been fitted with the correct detectors, which means that if they were to be operated remotely they would not detect a car underneath; further notes that this has forced manual signal boxes to be retained; is concerned that this may only be a short-term measure; and calls on the Government to ask Network Rail to carry out a review as to the viability of continuing with the scheme.
