HC Deb 30 April 1958 vol 587 c38W
64. Captain Pilkington

asked the Minister of Works whether, in view of the steadily increasing congestion in London, he will expedite such obvious improvements as proper roundabouts at the south-west and north-west gates in Hyde Park.

Mr. Molson

The temporary roundabout at the north-west corner of Hyde Park, near the Victoria Gate, has now been in operation for more than two years, and I am informed that it has greatly eased the traffic problem there. I do not, however, consider that I should be justified in constructing a permanent roundabout either there or at the Alexandra Gate at the south-west corner of the Park until I have been able to observe what effect the proposed Park Lane improvement scheme has on the traffic at these points.
