HC Deb 02 July 1897 vol 50 c953

I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade, what steps, if any, have been taken to oblige the Great Northern Railway Company of Ireland to erect a bridge at the level crossing on their line of railway at Clones; and, will the Board of Trade at least compel the company to construct a foot bridge so that persons requiring to cross the line at Clones while the gates are closed may be enabled to do so without the risks with which the present tunnel passage is beset?


No, Sir, the Board of Trade cannot compel the Company to substitute a bridge for the existing tunnel passage. The Company state they are not aware of there being any risk whatever attendant upon the use of the subway.
