§ Mr. Russell
asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation why the removal of the roundabout at Brent Bridge on the North Circular Road, Hendon, is taking so long to complete; how many men are employed on the scheme; and the total cost of the road-works and of installing traffic signals.
§ Mr. Boyd-Carpenter
The work has had to be done more slowly than I would have liked because of the need to do it in a way which would cause the least interference to the very heavy traffic using this junction. This also restricted working space. The total cost is £19,896. The cost of installing traffic signals is £1,500.
