HC Deb 27 November 1950 vol 481 cc112-3W
94. Mr. J. Rodgers

asked the Minister of Works if he will consider erecting- new gates at the Albert Gate in order that traffic may leave and enter two abreast, to relieve traffic congestion which is caused by the single entrance and exit.

95. Mr. Erroll

asked the Minister of Works if he is aware of the traffic congestion caused by the narrowness of the Albert and similar gates of Hyde Park; and as these are of little architectural merit, if he will arrange for their removal and so permit of a more rapid flow of traffic in and out of the park.

Mr. Stokes

I understand that the London and Home Counties Traffic Advisory Committee have this matter under review as part of the larger question
