SNP MP raises pub­lic safety con­cerns over rail­way gate

The Courier & Advertiser (Angus and The Mearns Edition) - - NEWS -

Dundee East SNP MP, Ste­wart Hosie, has writ­ten to Net­work Rail re­gard­ing the gate at the rail­way on An­der­son Street, Carnoustie.

The gate, which al­lows for peo­ple to cross the rail­way tracks, has not been clos­ing prop­erly for some time, spark­ing out­rage from dog walk­ers and par­ents.

A num­ber of con­stituents and lo­cal groups, par­tic­u­larly wor­ried for the safety of chil­dren and pets, raised the is­sue with their MP Mr Hosie.

He said: “The is­sue with the gate not clos­ing prop­erly is a real cause for con­cern – there is a gen­uine risk to pub­lic safety.

“I would also urge res­i­dents in the mean­time to take ex­tra spe­cial care when us­ing the cross­ing.”
