§ Mr. Iremonger
asked the Minister of Transport if he will provide pedestrian crossings and gaps in the fencing now obstructing pedestrians crossing the central reservation in Woodford Avenue between Gants Hill and the roundabout at Longwood Gardens, Ilford; and by what authority the fencing was put up.
§ Mr. Tom Fraser
This fencing has been provided in the interest of road safety to prevent, amongst other things, indiscriminate crossing of this road by pedestrians. It would, therefore, be wrong to leave too many gaps. Three have been provided in the length of just under half a mile, at points convenient for bus stops.184W
The fencing was put up by Ilford Borough Council acting as my agent for work on this trunk road.
