HC Deb 25 February 1952 vol 496 cc80-1W
87. Mr. Short

asked the Minister of Transport what results have been obtained from the experimental traffic island at the junction of Clayton Street, Westmorland Road and Scotswood Road in Newcastle-upon-Tyne.

Mr. Maclay

The experimental traffic island has proved of considerable benefit to pedestrians, but other traffic has not been materially assisted. The Corporation of Newcastle-upon-Tyne are in touch with my Department about possible improvements in the traffic system here.
