HC Deb 27 May 1937 vol 324 cc407-8
60. Sir Reginald Blair

asked the Minister of Transport for what period has single-line traffic, controlled by police signals, been in operation during the last two years at the bridges near Rickmansworth, Herts; and when if, it proposed to resume normal traffic conditions?

Mr. Hore-Belisha

Single-line working was brought into operation on 4th September last, but two-way traffic working has now been resumed.

63. Colonel Goodman

asked the Minister of Transport whether he has received any report as to the operation of the invisible-ray apparatus for controlling traffic at the junction of Queen's Drive and Muirhead Avenue, Liverpool; and whether such report is of the nature to justify him recommending the adoption of this system of traffic control to the authorities elsewhere responsible for traffic conditions?

Mr. Hore-Belisha

As the system has only been in operation for three weeks I would prefer to await a more extended period of trial before reaching a conclusion as to its effectiveness.
