HC Deb 01 December 1965 vol 721 cc189-90W
80. Sir Rolf Dudley Williams

asked the Minister of Transport what is the meaning of the sign with an R on it, many of which have recently appeared on the Exeter by-pass.

Mr. Tom Fraser

The sign indicates a ring road. It is illustrated in the booklet "The New Traffic Signs" which was issued to publicise the signs introduced following the recommendations of the Worboys Committee.

Mr. Tom Fraser

Work on Route 232 has begun; the new road should be completed before the end of next year.

An improvement of the Barton Dock Road/ Park Road junction, including the provision of traffic lights, is expected to start late next spring and will take up to six months to complete.

Detailed planning of the gyratory system at the junction of Trafford Park Road and Trafford Road is well advanced. The scheme will include a link road between Trafford Park Road and Trafford Wharf Road immediately west of the junction. Work is expected to start about the end of 1966 and to last about a year.
