HC Deb 11 June 1956 vol 554 c7W
Mr. Callaghan

asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation if, in view of the local concern felt at the number of recent accidents on the Cardiff—Newport Road, he will undertake a special investigation and propose remedies to reduce the accident rate.

Mr. Watkinson

I do not think that a special investigation is called for; my divisional road engineer and the other authorities concerned, including the police, are well aware of traffic conditions on this road and give constant consideration to such matters. Traffic islands have been provided at a number of points, and later on I hope to be able to authorise a widening of the road at the bottleneck at Castleton.
