HC Deb 17 June 1936 vol 313 c986
42. Brigadier-General SPEARS

asked the Minister of Transport whether the erection of a central division has reduced accidents in the Great West Road; and whether he can make any statement as to when cyclists' tracks to either side of the present roadway will be constructed?


The answer to the first part of the question is in the negative, and to the second part, that the Middlesex County Council expect to commence construction of cycle tracks in August next. There can be no doubt that the present lay-out of the road is unsatisfactory, and the county council have the matter before them.

Brigadier-General SPEARS

Is there not any possibility of having something done before next August?


We are all very anxious to have something done, but the Middlesex County Council have undertaken to do it in August, which is not too far ahead.


Is not August too far away, because we have been waiting for the spring?
