HC Deb 17 June 1936 vol 313 cc986-7
43. Brigadier-General SPEARS

asked the Minister of Transport whether he will urge local authorities wherever possible to mark all main roads with white lines, dividing the roadway into three or four lanes, so as to encourage traffic to keep to the nearside, except when overtaking?


The special attention of highway authorities has already been drawn to the use of white lines on carriageways, and another circular will shortly be issued dealing with this and other matters.

Captain PLUGGE

Will the Minister also urge the use of signals painted on the surface of the road utilising the parallax type of lettering?


No, Sir.
