A69 petition presented to parliament

Carlisle MP John Stevenson will take delivery of a 1,500 strong petition calling for the de-trunking of the A69 at Warwick Bridge.

Mr Stephenson will present the petition to parliament, alongside the MP for Penrith and the Border, Rory Stewart.

Campaigners say the volume of heavy traffic , which cuts through the villages of Warwick Bridge and Corby Hill, is a great risk to pedestrians in both communities.

The busy road which runs between Carlisle and Newcastle has been the subject of de-trunking calls for more than forty years.
