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.
