HC Deb 03 February 1965 vol 705 c290W
60. Sir B. Janner

asked the Minister of Transport whether he is aware of the danger arising from the dangerous sweeping curves approaching the M.1 Markfield exit and access point; what steps he proposes to take to deal with them; and whether he will have warning notices erected on the road at appropriate places.

Mr. Tom Fraser

The curves on the A.50, at its approaches to the Markfield junction with M.1, conform to accepted design standards and are not considered to be dangerous. Some accidents occurred during construction of the junction, probably because traffic approached the roundabout too fast. Erection of warning signs at the roundabout and on its approaches is expected to be completed in the next few days and additional "Slow" markings are to be painted on the carriageways. The situation will be kept under close observation.
