§ 123. Mr. Hector Hughes
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will state his plans for introducing and extending the motorway lane system on the streets and roads in and about the city of Aberdeen; and what are his plans for diminishing the number of road accidents caused by motorcars in that area.
§ Mr. Ross
Within the city both these matters are the responsibility of Aberdeen Corporation, and the accident rate there compares very favourably with that of other large towns in Scotland.
Motorway lane markings are appropriate only to dual carriageways, and the two miles of dual carriageway on trunk road A.92 north of the city are so marked.
