HC Deb 19 June 1968 vol 766 c1082
45. Mr. Gresham Cooke

asked the Minister of Transport when a pedestrian crossing will be provided in Broad Street, Teddington.

Mr. Swingler

Census figures are being obtained and a decision will be made as soon as these have been considered.

Mr. Gresham Cooke

Would the Minister of State take into account the fact that the people of Teddington have been waiting some time for this pedestrian crossing and that it is really needed?

Mr. Swingler

I do not know whether the hon. Gentleman is aware that we did not get the application from the council until January this year. It is necessary to make traffic counts, pedestrian counts and so on. I assure him that the gathering of this information will go forward as rapidly as possible and that we will give a decision at an early date.
