Network Rail have called a public meeting to discuss plans for a new concrete sleeper factory in Bescot.
The company intends to produce 600,000 sleepers a year - 60 per cent of Britain’s entire production - at Bescot.
While mindful of the claims that it will deliver 100 new jobs, the factory’s proximity to three schools and a housing estate - and residents fears of associated health risks are of great concern.
As your MP, I will be voicing my concerns and the concerns of local people directly to Network Rail and the Council. I will not support any proposal that leads to increased traffic, noise, dust and pollution.
