HC Deb 26 November 1958 vol 596 c53W
82. Mr. Hastings

asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation what proportion of the automatic train control equipment now under construction or completed, respectively, is in the Greater London area as represented by the Metropolitan Police district.

Mr. Nugent

Of the 1,500 route miles already equipped with Automate Warning Control, 51 miles are in the Greater London area as defined. Of the 193 route miles due for completion by the end of the year, 16 are in the same area. These figures exclude the London Transport railways, all of which are equipped with automatic train stops.
