NEWS – A52 Campaign

The Department for Transport have responded to Bramcote campaigner Tony Smith’s petition calling for traffic enforcement measures along the A52 in Bramcote and Beeston.  Broxtowe MP Anna Soubry presented Tony’s petition of over 1600 signatures to Parliament in February.

In the response, Minister John Hayes confirmed that Highways England are reviewing the road and agreed to write to Highways England:

“The Department for Transport would like to thank the petitioners for taking this positive action to bring this matter to its attention and the Minister will write to Highways England to make it aware of the concerns of Parliament.”

Since Anna Soubry presented Tony Smith’s petition there have been other serious accidents along the A52 and Highways England have said they are carrying out a full investigation, including speed surveys and collision studies.

In March during Transport Questions in the House of Commons, Anna Soubry also called for the Minister for Transport to meet with Tony Smith to discuss his campaign to stop dangerous speeding on the A52.  The Minister agreed and this will happen after the General Election on June 8th.
