HC Deb 20 July 1965 vol 716 cc209-10W
Mr. James Johnson

asked the Minister of Transport when it is intended to close the Cottingham branch section of railway line, in the city of Kingston-upon-Hull, from the Hessle Road fly-over to the junction with the Hull-Scarborough line, which contains the Haltemprice Street, Newington and Waterworks level-crossings.

Mr. Tom Fraser

The Railways Board has recently published formal notice of its intention to close this section of line on 13th September. This is subject to the statutory procedure set out in Section 56(7) of the Transport Act, 1962. If no valid objections are received within the statutory time limit, the Board will be free to carry out its intention forthwith.
