HC Deb 03 July 1968 vol 767 cc239-40W
Mr. Molloy

asked the Minister of Transport what requests he has received, and what replies have been sent, for the establishment of pedestrian push button control at the junction of Whitton Avenue and Greenford Road, Ealing, Middlesex, to supplement the present traffic lights.

Mr. Swingler

The Ealing Federation of Residents Associations were informed on 23rd May, 1967, that their request for push button pedestrian crossings at the junction had been passed to the Greater London Council, who are both traffic and highway authority. I understand that following a traffic count and a site meeting with the Police and London Borough of Ealing, the Greater London Council advised the Association in April, 1968, that additional pedestrian facilities at this junction could not be justified.
