Newhall Gardens - safety concern addressed

Network Rail has recently been undertaking work to the north of the rail line at Vernonholme and Newhall Gardens to reduce the possibility of debris landing on the rail line and part of this work has involved the removal and thinning of foliage.

This necessary work has resulted, however, in the wire boundary fence being exposed (see below) and highlights the need for its replacement.   I visited residents about their concerns at the weekend and am pleased to say that, after discussing the matter with Network Rail, it has been agreed to remove the existing fence and replace it with a substantial one.
