HC Deb 16 June 1925 vol 185 cc305-6W
Viscount SANDON

asked the Minister of Transport whether the circle system can be tried at some congested road junction, as an experiment for solving traffic congestion, by keeping every vehicle on the move and thus avoiding blocks?

Colonel ASHLEY

Consideration has been given to the suggestion that the circulatory method should be adopted at certain of the more congested street junctions in London, but I am not yet satisfied that its adoption would not lead to confusion and increase the existing congestion. I understand, however, that the London Traffic Advisory Committee are giving further consideration to this method in connection with an examination of the causes of congestion in Trafalgar Square, and the remedial measures which can usefully be taken to relieve such congestion. I must await their report on this matter before reaching any decision.
