HC Deb 07 July 1971 vol 820 cc1336-7
41. Mr. Duffy

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will take steps to equip all intersections on the M1 motorway in Yorkshire with lighting.

Mr. Eldon Griffiths

No, Sir.

Mr. Duffy

Is the hon. Gentleman aware that some such intersections of motorways in Yorkshire are so equipped and some are not? Does not this suggest a lack of policy on the part of the Department of the Environment? Is not some uniformity desirable on safety grounds?

Mr. Griffiths

Where the connecting roads carrying traffic to and from these motorway interchanges are lit, it is perfectly reasonable coat the interchanges themselves should be lit. But, generally, where there is grade separation, it is not necessary.
