HC Deb 07 February 1962 vol 653 c59W
62. Sir W. Wakefield

asked the Minister of Transport if he will consider putting back temporarily refuges for pedestrians during the one-way traffic experiment now taking place in Baker Street and Gloucester Place.

Mr. Hay

No. In one-way traffic, central refuges tend to be more of a danger than a help to pedestrians. But we are considering, with the St. Marylebone Council, what further assistance could be given to pedestrians.
