HC Deb 18 December 1963 vol 686 cc220-1W
75. Mr. Russell

asked the Minister of Transport when he proposes to put into operation the pilot scheme for restricting parking at road junctions: and if, in view of the fact that the start of schemes such as that at the junction of Harrow Road and Rugby Avenue, Wembley, is being delayed by some local authorities not having selected their sites, he will take steps to expedite the work.

Mr. Marples

All the sites for this experiment have been selected. The processes of formulating specific proposals, advertising them and examining objections received are taking longer than I anticipated. In addition, I want to use a new system of indicating the restrictions by signs, developed from the Worboys Report. The experiment will start as soon as I have completed consultations with representative organisations about this and the signs have been obtained. But I cannot at present say when this will be.
