HC Deb 07 June 1961 vol 641 c1070
23. Mr. Buck

asked the Minister of Transport what plans he has for the improvement of road safety on the Colchester by-pass, with particular reference to the entrance to Arclight Works.

The Joint Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Transport (Mr. John Hay)

Our engineers are discussing this problem with the management of the Arclight Works and the Borough Council.

Mr. Buck

I thank my hon. Friend for that reply. Would not he agree that it is an alarming situation when there are 900 men pouring out on to an unrestricted road? Will he give this matter close attention and, see that action is taken at an early date?

Mr. Hay

We are fully aware of the problem outside these works. A similar problem is encountered in a great many other places where a large number of people are leaving or arriving at work almost simultaneously, but we will certainly go on trying to find a solution in this case.
