HC Deb 27 March 1956 vol 550 cc186-7W
Mr. Russell

asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation how much land will be required for the proposed roundabout at the junction of the Watford by-pass with the Aldenham-Bushey road; what is the estimated cost of acquiring this land and of constructing the roundabout; and what would the cost be of installing and maintaining traffic lights as an alternative.

Mr. Watkinson

Approximately 450 square yards of land will be required for the roundabout and the estimated cost of land acquisition and accommodation works is £650. The estimated cost of construction work is £14,000.

The simplest form of signal installation would cost £1,500 initially and £100 per annum to maintain, but owing to the traffic conditions at this junction signal control would not be a satisfactory alternative to a roundabout.
