HC Deb 05 December 1956 vol 561 cc1226-7
7. Mr. Moss

asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation whether he will take steps to cause a pedestrian crossing to be placed across Watling Street at Grendon in the County of Warwick.

Mr. Molson

I do not think that the circumstances here warrant a zebra crossing or that one would be of any real help to pedestrians. The police agree with this view.

Mr. Moss

Has the Minister noticed the number of accidents which have taken place in this village recently, and is he aware of the popular vote in the village against the lack of safety provisions at these crossroads?

Mr. Molson

I have been made familiar with the problem by the numerous Questions which the hon. Member has asked on the subject. I have indicated that we think that the only satisfactory measure would be to widen the road, which we hope to do when money is available.
