The pedestrian route across the level crossing at Bramley has long been dangerous at worst—and an annoyance at best—and it is time for a pedestrian footbridge to be constructed, like those at Mortimer and Hook.
Sadly, tragic accidents and fatalities have occurred over the years here and at other level crossings, so this is an issue I have been pressing Network Rail and our local councils on for several years. Indeed, I was keen to see this progressed when I was Borough Councillor for Bramley and Sherfield, prior to my election as your Member of Parliament in 2015.
To get these urgently-needed improvements back on track, this petition calls for Network Rail and local councils to come back to the table and make it happen and I would strongly urge you to sign it, then share it—with your neighbours, friends and family.
With the help and support of concerned constituents like you, I am confident that we can make Network Rail and our local councils understand that it is not only the Bramley residents and commuters of today that stand to benefit, but those future residents who choose to move in to the new developments that are being built in the village.
