HC Deb 25 October 1948 vol 456 cc217-8W
Mr. Battley

asked the Minister of Transport whether he is aware of the danger to traffic and to the public of the narrow bottleneck at the bend of Clapham Park Road, Clapham; the congestion caused by the existence of a dump for second-hand motor vehicles; the parking of vehicles immediately outside; and if he will take steps to remedy the danger.

Mr. Barnes

While conditions will be materially improved when it is possible to carry out the widening scheme for this road prepared by the London County Council, the Police report that no accidents have occurred in the vicinity of the junction of Clapham Park Road and Abbeville Road during 1948, and only one case of obstruction to traffic has been reported. No special action appears to be required for the present, but I have no doubt that the Police will continue to keep traffic conditions under observation.
