Changes to the Number 23 bus route, Erewash

  1. Maggie Throup (Erewash) (Con) rose—[Interruption.]

  2. Mr Speaker

    Order. Colleagues will want courteously to attend to the words of Maggie Throup in respect of her petition and will not be diverted into superfluous and distracting conversations which jar somewhat and might be thought by the hon. Lady to be a tad discourteous, so I am sure that Members will toddle out of the Chamber quickly and quietly. Mr Yasin, there is no need, my dear chap, to look bemused—it will all become clear ere long. It is very good of you, Lady Hermon, to wave goodbye to us all as you depart the Chamber—very thoughtful.

  3. Maggie Throup

    I rise on behalf of residents in my constituency, and in particular those living in Cotmanhay and Kirk Hallam, who have been adversely affected by recent changes to the No. 23 bus route operated by trentbarton. The petition has been signed by nearly 300 local residents, and I am delighted to present it to the House this evening for consideration.

    The petition declares:

    The petition of residents of Erewash,

    Declares that the number 23 bus route operated by Trent Motor Traction Company Ltd and Barton Buses Ltd (known as trentbarton), and which currently serves the community of Cotmanhay including Church Street and Nelson Street, acts as a vital lifeline for many local residents as their only way of accessing Ilkeston town centre and Ilkeston Community Hospital; further the proposed amalgamation of the number 21 and 23 bus routes will mean that residents living on and around Church Street and Nelson Street will be negatively impacted as they will have to walk a considerable distance to Cotmanhay Road in order to access an alternative bus service; further the residents will no longer have access to a bus service that calls at Ilkeston Community Hospital; and further that these new arrangements will also negatively impact the residents of Kirk Hallam.

    The petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urge the Chief Executive of trentbarton to reconsider the proposed changes and to reinstate the original number 23 bus route.

    And the petitioners remain, etc.


Warwick Road, Carlisle

  1. John Stevenson (Carlisle) (Con)

    I would like to present a petition on behalf of the residents of Warwick Road, Carlisle. Only a few houses are directly affected, but more than 5,000 people have supported the petition on behalf of the residents at the top end of Warwick Road.

    The petition states:

    The petition of residents of Warwick Road, Carlisle,

    Declares that they are against proposals from Cumbria County Council to construct a third lane along a section of Warwick Road, Carlisle.

    The petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges Cumbria County Council to withdraw proposals to construct a third lane along a section of Warwick Road, Carlisle, as it will provide none of the stated benefits to the city and cause an unacceptable negative impact on the quality of life of Warwick Road residents.

    And the petitioners remain, etc.
