§ 106. Mr. C. Johnson
asked the Minister of Works whether he will take the necessary steps at the earliest possible 131W moment to introduce pedestrian crossings and traffic lights on motor roads in the Royal Parks.
§ Mr. H. Nicholls
After consultation with my right hon. Friend the Minister of Transport, it has been decided that in Hyde Park (on roads not affected by the Park Lane Improvement Scheme), St. James's Park, Green Park, Richmond Park and Greenwich Park the introduction of pedestrian crossings would not be warranted. The position in Regent's Park and Bushey Park is being examined.
There are already traffic lights, or control by police or park-keepers, at a number of points in the Royal Parks. No extension of these facilities is considered necessary.
