HC Deb 27 March 1928 vol 215 cc977-8
35. Captain CROOKSHANK

asked the Minister of Transport if the roundabout systems of traffic at Hyde Park Corner and the Marble Arch are now considered to be permanent; and, if so, whether he is making any arrangements for a fresh lay-out of the refuges and monuments at those places?

Colonel ASHLEY

It is proposed to continue the present "roundabout" systems of traffic working at Hyde Park Corner and the Marble Arch as a permanency. The position of several of the refuges both at Hyde Park Corner and at the Marble Arch has been altered to facilitate the working of the systems, and it is not at present proposed to make any fresh lay-out at these places.


Is the right hon. Gentleman aware of the dangerous condition of affairs just outside St. George's Hospital?

Colonel ASHLEY

No, Sir, I am not aware of that.

Captain BRASS

Can the right hon. Gentleman say what actual alterations have been made?

Colonel ASHLEY

Quite a number of alterations have been made.
