HC Deb 14 March 1956 vol 550 c373
42. Mr. Russell

asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation if, in view of the congestion and confusion which occurs in peak hours at the Hyde Park Corner and Marble Arch roundabout system, he will re-examine the roundabout planned for the Elephant and Castle improvement scheme so as to ensure that it will be large enough to handle satisfactorily the peak hour traffic expected to use it.

The Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation (Mr. Harold Watkinson)

I am satisfied that the roundabout scheme as proposed will handle satisfactorily the present-day peak-hour traffic and provide an adequate reserve capacity for increased traffic in the future.
