Anna Soubry, MP for Broxtowe, is meeting with cyclists tomorrow, Friday 26th February, who have suffered injuries on a dangerous part of the tram route through Beeston.
Dozens of experienced and responsible cyclists have contacted Anna about their experiences when cycle wheels get stuck in tram tracks on Chilwell/ High Road . They have all suffered serious injuries, notably broken bones, head injuries and cuts to the face.
Anna said “we have already made progress following my meeting with the police, Highways and NET last week. New warning signs have now been put up to warn cyclists of the danger and there is a full review of this stretch of the tram route.”
Some injured cyclists want to take legal action “what’s striking is that they are not motivated by compensation but the desire to make the entire tram route safe for cyclists” said Anna, “constituents have sustained nasty injuries through no fault of their own and we are determined to prevent further accidents.”
