§ 34. Mr. BROAD
asked the Minister of Transport the total number of fatal road accidents which have occurred from 1913 to 1923 on the high road from Dalston Junction to Stamford Hill, from thence to the Tottenham boundary, and thence to the Edmonton boundary; what is the average number per mile in each section and the relative traffic density as shown by the last census of traffic; and how far these accidents have been attributed to the condition of the tramway track under the control of the London County Council and the Metropolitan Electric Tramways Company in each section?
§ The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for the HOME DEPARTMENT (Mr. Rhys Davies)
I have been asked to reply. The fatalities from 1913 to 1923 are as follow:
(1) Dalston Junction to Stamford Hill 16 (2) Stamford Hill to West Green Road 8 (3) Broad Lane to Edmonton Boundary 19
In the second section one accident was attributed to the condition of the tramway track belonging to the Metropolitan Electric Tramways Company as lessee.
The averages are approximately: Per Mile. First section 12.8 Second section 5.3 Third section nearly 10
2735 A census of traffic has not been taken to cover the several sections, but sections 1 and 3 are of heavy density, the other of medium density.
