§ Mr. John Wells
asked the Minister of Transport what steps he is taking to improve visibility and safety on the A.229 road near Southborough Schools, Maidstone; and if he will have consultations with the local authority on this matter.
§ Mr. Tom Fraser
This road is the responsibility of the Maidstone Borough Council and it would be for it to initiate a case for improvements or facilities it considers should have priority. My Divisional Road Engineer has already agreed to pay grant on the cost of installing traffic signals near the school.
