HC Deb 28 February 1929 vol 225 c2183
54. Sir R. THOMAS

asked the Minister of Transport approximately at how many points in England and Wales Class A roads cross railways on the level; what sum has been allocated from the Road Fund towards the elimination of such crossings by bridging during 1929; and how many level crossings will be so eliminated?

The MINISTER of TRANSPORT (Colonel Ashley)

No comprehensive record is available, but it is estimated that on Class I roads in Great Britain there are about 250 level crossings of more than ordinary importance. During the current financial year, I have indicated grants, totalling £58,125, towards expenditure estimated at £77,500, in respect of schemes which provide for the elimination of four level crossings on important roads. I do not know what schemes may be submitted to me during the next financial year.
