HC Deb 03 March 1965 vol 707 c245W
27. Mr. Kershaw

asked the Minister of Transport whether he is aware of the continuing danger on the A.38 where it is three-lane, particularly on the stretch between Elmore Lane and the Quedgeley roundabout, south of Gloucester; and whether he will now take steps to alter the lane markings so as to diminish this danger.

Mr. Swingler

The conversion of three-lane roads to two reduces traffic flow and is justified only where visibility is bad and speeds are high. These criteria are not met between Elmore Lane and the Quedgeley Roundabout. Nor would such a short length of road be suitable for offset markings.
