§ Mr. James Johnson
asked the Minister of Transport when it is intended to close 210W the Cottingham branch section of railway line, in the city of Kingston-upon-Hull, from the Hessle Road fly-over to the junction with the Hull-Scarborough line, which contains the Haltemprice Street, Newington and Waterworks level-crossings.
§ Mr. Tom Fraser
The Railways Board has recently published formal notice of its intention to close this section of line on 13th September. This is subject to the statutory procedure set out in Section 56(7) of the Transport Act, 1962. If no valid objections are received within the statutory time limit, the Board will be free to carry out its intention forthwith.
