HC Deb 30 November 1938 vol 342 c420
71. Mr. Sorensen

asked the Minister of Transport what increase of traffic was shown by the census taken in August of this year at Whipps Cross Corner, Leyton, compared with the census in August, 1935; and whether he is recommending that traffic lights be erected at that point?

Mr. Burgin

The census shows an increase of 1,480 vehicles and 337 pedal cycles. The layout at the junction is unsuitable for control by traffic signals, and consideration is being given to the question of the construction of a roundabout after the tramway tracks have been removed.
