FENLAND Road Safety Campaigner Graham Chappell visited 10 Downing Street to hand over a report setting out the progress made during the past year.
Mr Chappell was met by Steve Barclay, prospective parliamentary candidate for North-East Cambs, who accepted the report so it could be passed on to Prime Minister Gordon Brown.
The campaign was set up in February 2008 following the death of nine-year-old Charlotte Walker after a road accident along the Sixteen Foot Bank.
A well-supported online petition to the Prime Ministers' Office asked for help towards the installation of safety barriers and speed cameras.
Mr Chappell said some valuable progress is being made at local level with some aspects of the Fen river roads.
He added: "Additional support and financial assistance, where possible, from national Government, would make a huge difference to what can be achieved for the people of and visitors to Fenland."
