Attenborough Pedestrian Rail Crossings

Many residents in Attenborough will have received yesterday, Friday 16th December, a copy of the letter below from Network Rail dated 28th November. Working with Anna Soubry MP, we will ensure that residents are kept fully informed and able to have their views fully considered, including at a public information event locally. These proposals have far reaching impacts not only for local residents, but for Broxtowe Borough and even wider. Individuals can also respond by email to crne@networkrail.co.uk or via a national helpline 03457114141, although the latter has an arduous telephone keypad menu.
