HC Deb 23 March 1955 vol 538 c187W
61. Mr. Sorensen

asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation what has been the increase during the past few years in the number and frequency of light and heavy vehicles passing daily along Lea Bridge Road, Leytonstone High Road, and Whipps Cross Road, Leyton; to what extent road surfaces in those main roads are now in more frequent need of repair; what has been the increase in accidents on these roads; and what consideration has been given to the incidence of the substantial increase in traffic through Leyton.

Mr. Boyd-Carpenter

A detailed analysis of the 1954 traffic census figures for theseroads has not yet been made. Maintenance expenditure has not increased materially. Accidents involving personal injury totalled 170 in 1951 and 1952, 158 in 1953 and 178 in 1954.
