HC Deb 12 February 1930 vol 235 c418
72. Mr. BOWEN

asked the Minister of Transport whether the representations of the Pedestrians' Association, suggesting that where two important roads cross each other two half-circle islands be constructed to slow down traffic on the road of lesser importance and to deflect it into the more important road in the direction in which its traffic is moving, has been brought to the notice of the Traffic Advisory Committee; and, if so, the result of their consideration of such proposal?


In September last a report on the lay-out of cross-roads, which covered the suggestion recently made by the Pedestrians' Association, and which had been drawn up by the Town Planning Institute in collaboration with my Department, was circulated to all highway authorities, and was also brought to the notice of the London Traffic Advisory Committee.
