§ 68. Mr. Osborne
asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation what advice he has given to local authorities not to build unnecessarily large and awkwardly-shaped traffic islands which reduce the flow of traffic unreasonably and make dangerous the work of heavy lorry drivers; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Nugent
All highway authorities have copies of publications on the layout and construction of roads, produced by our Department, which include advice on the design of traffic islands and roundabouts. In addition, our engineers are always ready to give advice on any case where difficulties are being experienced.
