HC Deb 06 July 1960 vol 626 c39W
50. Sir W. Wakefield

asked the Minister of Transport if he will take action progressively to eliminate all traffic signals on the Great West Road by providing two or three flyovers at the busiest crossings, and only allowing infiltration to the left at other road intersections, in view of the constant hold up of the large volume of traffic using this road.

Mr. Marples

Because of the built-up nature of the area it would hardly be economic or practicable to provide flyovers at junctions on the Great West Road, which will probably be superseded by the proposed Chiswick-Langley motorway as the main route for through traffic to the West. I am, however, having the traffic signals on the Great West Road examined with a view to securing a better flow of traffic and to determine whether any turning movements could be justifiably and profitably eliminated.
