HC Deb 03 December 1936 vol 318 cc1448-9W

asked the Minister of Transport if he will have inquiries made as to whether there is any efficient mechanical method of painting traffic lines on roads which would reduce the cost of painting them in comparison with doing so by hand?


There are several efficient mechanical methods of painting traffic lines which reduce the cost of hand painting. I am, however, about to issue a circular to Highway Authorities encouraging them to use more permanent forms of line marking such as steel, rubber, or other approved studs or blocks laid intermittently to indicate traffic lanes.
