HC Deb 12 May 1965 vol 712 c77W
89. Mr. Ian Lloyd

asked the Minister of Transport whether the Road Research Laboratory has now had an opportunity of evaluating the crash barriers developed by the Cornell Aeronautical Laboratory; and what advice he has received on the suitability of this and other American crash barriers for the M.1 and other motorways.

Mr. Tom Fraser

These barriers, among others, are still the subject of experiments which the Road Research Laboratory is continuing to follow closely, but neither these experiments, nor those being carried out by the Road Research Laboratory itself, are sufficiently far advanced for any firm advice to be offered.
