§ 55. Dame Irene Ward
asked the Minister of Transport when he intends to adopt a 40 miles per hour speed limit on the Great North Road between Newcastle-upon-Tyne and Gosforth.
§ Mr. Hay
My right hon. Friend has given notice to the Newcastle-upon-Tyne City Council that he intends to make an order raising from 30 to 40 m.p.h. the speed limit on A.1 where it crosses the Town Moor. The road is not a trunk128W road within the city and the council has exercised its right to require him to hold a public inquiry. Arrangements are being made for the inquiry to be held as soon as possible.
