§ 75. Mr. Ronald Russell
asked the Minister of Transport when he expects that all wood-paving will be removed from the roads of central London and replaced by a less slippery surface.
§ The Minister of Transport (Mr. John Maclay)
Highway authorities are replacing wood-paving with non-skid material as and when resurfacing is necessary. I cannot say how long this will take.
§ Mr. Mikardo
Can the right hon. Gentleman get the appropriate authority to have a particular look at Lisson Grove, Marylebone, which is increasingly being used as a motor road as an alternative to the Edgware Road, and which in wet weather is literally a death trap?
