Carlisle MP John Stephenson is presenting a petition to Parliament this evening, calling for the de-trunking of the A69.
The petition, which was organised by Conservative candidate Nick Marriner, is calling on Government to de- trunk the major route from the Brampton roundabout to Junction 43 of the M6.
A 1,500 strong petition has been handed over to Carlisle MP John Stevenson, calling for the de-trunking of the A69.
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.
