HC Deb 23 December 1964 vol 704 c279W
42. Mr. Burden

asked the Minister of Transport if he is aware of the inadequate safety fencing on flyovers crossing M.2; and if he will take steps to have them adequately reinforced before the hazard is increased by icy roads.

Mr. Swingler

We have no knowledge of a serious accident record in connection with the fencing on bridges over any motorway.

Since June, 1964, it has been a design requirement to provide approved safety fences on all bridges carrying vehicular traffic over a motorway. The application of this requirement to existing bridges is being examined.
