§ Mr. Gregory
asked the Minister of Transport (1) what action she proposes to take on the provision of zebra crossings on the stretch of roadway between the Bull's Head Hotel and Houldsworth Square, at Gorton Road, North Reddish, Stockport; and what are the final arrangements to provide adequate safety measures on this roadway after consultations with the regional road engineer and the county borough of Stockport, in view of the high and unsatisfactory accident record;
(2) when approval will be granted for the installation of traffic signals at the intersection of Longford Road, West, and Gorton Road, North Reddish, Stockport; and when she expects such controls to be operational together with the provision of guard rails at this section of roadway, as referred to in recent correspondence with the hon. Member for Stockport, North.
§ Mr. John Morris
On the need for zebra crossings on Gorton Road I cannot usefully add to what I said in my letters of 20th January and 15th February. Additional safety measures in the form of "No Waiting" orders have recently been introduced from Furnival Street to Station Road and from Houldsworth Square to Priory Lane by the Stockport County Borough Council who are the highway authority.
I understand that the provision of guard rails and the installation of traffic signals are still under consideration by the Council.
