HC Deb 04 February 1959 vol 599 cc378-9
34. Mr. Moss

asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation whether a fresh study has now been completed of the junction of the A.446 and B.4117 roads at Coleshill, in the County of Warwick; what steps have already been taken to improve the safety of this junction; and what is proposed to effect a permanent improvement.

Mr. Nugent

Yes, Sir. "Dual Carriageway Ahead" signs are to be installed soon and other signs will be altered slightly. The county council's opinion, which I share, is that these changes will be sufficient. The junction will, however, continue to be kept under observation.

Mr. Moss

Has the Minister departed from his former opinion that there was danger at this crossing? Is he aware that it looks like the Aegean Sea, because it has so many islands?

Mr. Nugent

It is one of these problem crossings. As the hon. Member knows, I inspected it myself, and I hoped that we could find a satisfactory solution, but I think that the present arrangement is about the best that we can make.
