HC Deb 03 July 1968 vol 767 c252W
Mr. Arthur Pearson

asked the Secretary of State for Wales whether, following the slicing off of the roof of a double-deck bus at Cross Inn, Llantrisant, conveying children to the seaside, he will order a survey of low bridges in Wales to be made with a view to removing the danger to road vehicles; and whether he will consider posting bolder warning signs than those in use at present to warn approaching tall road vehicles of such hazards.

Mr. George Thomas

Highway authorities in Wales are already aware of the heights of bridges over their roads and a special survey is not therefore necessary.

I am drawing the attention of highway authorities in Wales to the need for the heights of low bridges to be adequately indicated both by advance warning signs and by signs on the bridges themselves.
