§ Mr. Jamieson
I understand that investigations into the circumstances surrounding the accident at Broken Cross Bridge, including the condition of the parapet, are on-going.
Given the general concern over highway accidents that result in vehicles ending up on railway tracks, the Government are keen to learn of such incidents as one part of our work to meet road safety targets.
I will therefore request that copies of the accident report are made available to my officials in order to assess whether there are any lessons to be learned. Until then I believe it would be inappropriate to make any further statement.
