A call for an extra junction on the M62 to ease traffic jams has attracted support.
Now Colne Valley MP Jason McCartney is hoping for a Westminster debate on the subject.
The MP made his call last week after horrendous traffic hams caused by a lorry crash on the busy motorway. At one point, hundreds of drivers were trapped for up to eight hours.
He suggested creating extra exits, including one on the westbound lanes at Outlane, and his idea has received a lot of backing via social media.
Transport chiefs are currently working on plans for another junction on the M62 near Bradley Wood.

The Highways Agency is examining proposals for a new junction, 24a, where the M62 crosses the A641 bridge near Huddersfield Road and Bradley Wood at Fixby.
The Agency is currently working with Kirklees Council to look at the feasibility of a new junction on the M62 between junction 24 and 25.
But those backing Mr McCartney’s plea have also suggested exit “gates” in the central reservation which can be used in an emergency.
They would allow the police and Highways Agency staff to turn round traffic stuck in long queues when there is a problem.
Mr McCartney said: “I have asked for a big debate about the M62 and I hope to find out within days when it could be.
“I have bene inundated with messages from people who support the idea and there are some very good suggestions.
“The idea of gates to allow traffic to be diverted from one carriageway to the other is a simple one which could work.
“It is all well and good to consider the M62 and how to keep traffic flowing but we need a plan for when things go wrong as they did last week. The motorway affects so many people.
“I remember my days of working in Leeds and to be sure of getting there from Holmfirth at 9am on a morning I had to allow 2½ hours”.
On social media, people backed the debate:
Lynn Gail Starling said: "Perhaps they should also consider making Outlane a full junction?"
Graham Robert Tandy: "Brilliant idea."
Jake Heath Crossley: "When I moved to Outlane last year I thought the same!"
Jack Hutchinson: "I have said this since it was built!"
