§ 30. Mr. Ridsdale
asked the Minister of Transport what further rules he proposes to enforce to get a speedier flow of traffic along Eastern Avenue, and the approaches from the East Coast.
§ Mr. Ridsdale
Is my hon. Friend aware that in Eastern Avenue we have an excellent dual carriageway, and could he see whether it is possible to cut out a number of roundabouts, side turnings and interceptions to enable much better use to be made of the existing facilities?
§ Mr. McAdden
Will my hon. Friend bear in mind—with due respect to my hon. Friend the Member for Harwich (Mr. Ridsdale)—that this Question is wrongly phrased? We do not want my right hon. Friend to enforce more rules: we want him to relax some of those which already exist. Is my hon. Friend aware that before improvements were carried out on Eastern Avenue it was a derestricted area and that since the road has been improved the speed limit has been reduced to 40 m.p.h.? Will my hon. Friend look into this?
