HC Deb 08 July 1965 vol 715 c313W
Mr. Prior

asked the Minister of Transport how many accidents have been reported in the last two years on the A.12 road north of Lowestoft from Hollingsworth Road Junction to the new dual carriageway; and what consultations are being held between the police authorities and his department to bring about improvements, or the introduction of a speed limit.

Mr. Tom Fraser

The accidents reported to the police during 1963 and 1964, were: in, 1963, one fatal, five injury and two non-injury; in 1964, eight injury and nine non-injury. There have been discussions between my engineers, the Lowestoft Borough Council, and the police about the possibility of improving the existing carriageway markings and other signs. A further meeting is arranged for 15th July. The introduction of a speed limit is also being considered.
