Mr. Gresham Cooke
asked the Minister of Transport, in view of the traffic improvement provided by the Hammersmith flyover, what proposals he has for speeding up traffic between the centre of London and London Airport by means of improvements east of the flyover, particularly at the Warwick Road and Earls Court Road intersections.
§ Mr. Marples
I am considering, with the police, the prohibition of right turns at a number of junctions between Knightsbridge and the flyover. This will enable the traffic signals at those junctions to be re-phased to help traffic along Cromwell Road.
In addition, the junctions with Warwick Road and Earls Court Road could be improved by one-way working in this area. I have put proposals for this to the Council of the Royal Borough of Kensington.
