HC Deb 26 February 1958 vol 583 c41W
59. Sir H. Lucas-Tooth

asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation what criteria are applied in deciding whether to grant or withhold permission for the installation of pedestrian-operated traffic signals at particular crossings.

Mr. Nugent

Decisions depend on conditions at particular sites, in particular the character and density of vehicle and pedestrian movements. Our aim is to reconcile considerations of safety for all road users with the demands of traffic flow.
