HC Deb 22 July 1909 vol 8 cc605-6

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether the South-Eastern and Chatham Railway Company have the right to close the gates and to take up the sleepers at the level crossing from Morton-road to Abbey-road, Abbey Wood; whether he is aware that it has caused inconvenience to the allotment holders on the St. John's estate by pre- venting them using this way on to their land, and that the Erith Urban District Council will not sanction the erection of buildings upon the allotments unless there are two means of access to the land, which is now impossible through the closing of the level crossing; and will he say if he can obtain the reopening of the crossing?


I am in communication with the managing committee of the railway on this subject, and will inform my hon. Friend of the result.
