HC Deb 12 February 1930 vol 235 c445W

asked the Minister of Transport whether he will consider recommending to all local authorities that a white line be made down the centre of all main roads?


The policy of my Department with respect to white lines is set out in a circular issued to highway authorities in January, 1926. Experience has shown the desirability of confining white lines to points where guidance to traffic is specially called for. A wide extension of the use of white lines, as suggested in my hon. Friend's question, would tend to defeat the object which he has in view.
