HC Deb 03 April 1957 vol 568 c385
26. Mr. Chetwynd

asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation whether he will instal a zebra crossing on road A19, Stockton-on-Tees, between the Malleable Club and Institute and Windmill Terrace.

Mr. Nugent

I will make inquiries as to the need for a crossing here and will consult the police and the borough council. I will write to the hon. Member when my investigations are complete.

Mr. Chetwynd

Will the hon. Gentleman in his investigation also take into account the fact that this is a very dangerous stretch of road which has to be crossed very frequently by old-age pensioners and many school-children? Will he also take into account the views of the inhabitants of the locality?

Mr. Ellis Smith

And of the local council.

Mr. Nugent

Certainly I will consider the views of all in the locality, but the hon. Member will bear in mind that Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council has turned the proposal down. However, we shall take into account all the local conditions.
