HC Deb 03 February 1960 vol 616 c971
7. Mr. Gresham Cooke

asked the Minister of Transport whether, with a view to freeing traffic congestion, he will consider progressively eliminating traffic making right-hand turns by one-way streets and other means.

Mr. Marples

There are limits to the extent to which these solutions can be successfully applied in the irregular London street pattern, but I agree in principle that right-hand turns should be eliminated wherever possible, and will apply this measure as widely as I can.

Mr. Gresham Cooke

Is my right hon. Friend aware that that Answer will give a great deal of satisfaction, since the right-hand turn is undoubtedly one of the worst factors in traffic congestion?
