§ 113. Mr. Sutcliffe
asked the Minister of Transport why reflecting road studs in built-up areas are not being replaced when damaged, and are to be taken up as roads are resurfaced; and if he will reconsider this decision in view of the difficulties of driving in darkened streets in winter.
§ Mr. Barnes
On main traffic routes in urban areas, where reflecting studs were provided during the war, street lighting is now back to a reasonable standard and motorists do not generally use their headlamps. I am advised that the studs are, accordingly, of little value in such areas.
