Train horns on the railway line by Oakey Drive

A number of constituents have contacted me to complain about train drivers sounding their horns on the railway line by Oakey Drive.

I took this matter up with Network Rail. I have now received the enclosed reply from Stuart Kistruck, Acting Route Managing Director for Wessex. The letter is available here.

Mr Kistruck confirms that Network Rail staff have covered the whistle boards and explained to drivers that they no longer need to sound their horns. South West Trains has also been notified of this action.
