HC Deb 20 December 1967 vol 756 cc406-7W
Mr. Dodds-Parker

asked the Minister of Transport on how many occasions traffic has had to be restricted on the Severn Bridge due of high winds during the last 12 months; and what action can be taken to reduce this inconvenience.

Mr. Carmichael:

Since 1st January, 1967, vehicles at risk, e.g. lightly loaded pantechnicons or cars towing two-wheeled caravans, have been temporarily prevented from entering the bridge for their own safety on 22 occasions. The decision on this must be left to the police on duty.
