§ Mr. Maclennan
asked the Minister of Transport what progress he is making in his efforts to ensure the safety of the railway crossing at Marrel, in Helmsdale, Sutherland.
§ Mr. Marsh
Improvements in safety at this level crossing are primarily for settlement between the Railways Board and local interests. I understand the Railways Board will seek my agreement to re-positioning the crossing at Marrel when the details of the road re-alignment scheme have been decided. Meanwhile, the Board have offered to install a telephone if the county council will pay for it.
