HC Deb 10 July 1935 vol 304 cc316-7

asked the Minister of Transport whether he will consider the desirability of having a clear broad line painted on every minor crossroad at its junction with a main arterial road, in view of the fact that it is often difficult to tell that the road ahead is an arterial road?


I are about to authorise a new sign for erection on minor roads where they join major roads, requiring drivers to halt immediately before entering the carriageway of a major road, unless they have a clear view of the major road in both directions. This new sign, in conjunction with the "Major Road Ahead" sign already authorised, should effectively meet the purpose which my hon. Friend has in mind.
