§ Mr. Ryan
asked the Minister of Transport what representations she has received from the Greater London Council about steps to be taken to prevent more accidents in Uxbridge Road, Hillingdon Heath; and what action she proposes to take to expedite the provision of either a pedestrian subway or pedestrian controlled traffic signals at this thoroughfare.
§ Mr. Swingler
No representations have been received from the Greater London Council.
Traffic control signals are being installed by that council, which is the highway and traffic authority, at the junction of Long Lane with Uxbridge Road and are expected to be in use by early June.
The council hopes that these signals will improve conditions for pedestrians in Hillingdon Heath.
The position will be reviewed when the signals are in operation.
