HC Deb 15 December 1952 vol 509 cc115-6W
40. Mr. Shepherd

asked the Minister of Transport when the unilateral waiting scheme for certain streets in the West End and elsewhere in London, announced some months ago, is likely to come into operation.

Mr. Braithwaite

Early next year, I hope, as soon as the necessary signs have been delivered and erected.

53. Mr. Langford-Holt

asked the Minister of Transport when the principles of unilateral parking in congested streets was first considered; and why it has not yet been introduced in London streets where the one-way traffic system is not operating and the parking of cars on both sides of the street permits only one line of traffic in one direction.

Mr. Braithwaite

The first Order for unilateral waiting under the Road Traffic Act, 1930, was made in 1932. On the advice of the London and Home Counties Traffic Advisory Committee, we propose as an experiment to introduce unilateral waiting on certain streets in the inner and outer areas of London early in the New Year when the necessary signs have been obtained and erected.
