§ Mr. Horner
asked the Minister of Transport how many accidents occurred at the junction of the Halesowen by-pass and Manor Lane, Halesowen, in the three weeks following the opening of the bypass on 19th November; and what steps she will now take to ensure that the junction is properly and safely designed.
§ Mr. Swingler
Four accidents, in which two people were slightly injured, were reported up to 11th December. The Worcestershire County Council, which is the highway authority responsible, has since provided additional warning signs and road markings at this junction and will continue to watch the situation.
