§ Mr. Biggs-Davison
asked the Minister of Transport what is the result of his Department's inquiries into the suggestion of traffic control signals at the junction of Brook Road, Church Road, and Epping New Road, Buckhurst Hill.
§ Mr. Marples
After considering the report of a site meeting held on 1st178W August, I have reached the conclusion that the installation of traffic signals at this junction is not justified. But I have considered carefully what other measures can be taken. I have arranged for the erection of illuminated "Pedestrian Crossing Ahead" signs and for "Halt" markings to be laid on the carriageway of both side road approaches. These will supplement the existing "Halt" signs.
I am also considering whether there would be advantage in providing a central refuge for pedestrians.
The police have promised to make special efforts to secure observance of the 30 m.p.h. speed limit here.
