HC Deb 23 March 1960 vol 620 cc486-7
17. Mr. D. Smith

asked the Minister of Transport if he will consider placing new warning signs on the three main roads approaching the Cromwell Road Extension roundabout at Church Street, Chiswick, in view of the increasing volume of high-speed traffic at that point.

Mr. Hay

In addition to the standard roundabout signs, a large white arrow against a red background has recently been provided on the Hogarth Lane approach, and the intensity of the external lighting of the advance warning signs is being improved. Conditions at the roundabout will be kept under close review, to see whether any further improvements are necessary.

Mr. Smith

Is my hon. Friend aware that that reply will be received with satisfaction by the local residents, who have been increasingly aware recently of the number of accidents and near-misses at this junction?

Mr. Hay

I thank my hon. Friend.
