HC Deb 13 February 1968 vol 758 cc337-8W
Mr. Kershaw

asked the Minister of Transport whether she is aware of the danger at the junction of the A38 and Nass Lane, Quedgeley, especially at the time when the workers at number 7 Maintenance Unit, Royal Air Force, Quedgeley, are leaving the depot; why the police traffic control has been withdrawn from this junction; and what further proposals she will make to control the traffic at this junction.

Mr. Carmichael:

We are aware that there are difficulties at this junction, especially at the times mentioned. The police traffic control provided during peak hours was recently withdrawn by the Chief Constable for so long as these periods occur during darkness because it is difficult for drivers to see the constable in these conditions. The control will be re-established as daylight hours extend.

We are examining the possibility of providing an improved lighting system by next winter and of subsequently constructing a roundabout at the junction.
