HC Deb 19 June 1968 vol 766 c1082
48. Mr. David Howell

asked the Minister of Transport by what date he intends to complete his survey of the use and effectiveness of X-way crossings; and how long a delay this will entail before the X-way crossing authorised on 29th March for the A3 at Burpham, and now partially installed, may be completed and put into operation.

Mr. Bob Brown

We have asked for some further information so that we can complete the survey. My right hon. Friend still hopes to announce his decision shortly.

In the meantime, and pending that decision, we have decided to let the Burpham crossing come into operation.

Mr. Howell

Is the hon. Gentleman aware that this is welcome but belated news? Although it has taken many months to reach this decision, many parents will be thankful for the fact that their children will be safer as a result of it.

Forward to
