HC Deb 03 May 1968 vol 763 c262W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Minister of Transport whether he is aware that the congestion on the North Circular Road between the Cambridge public house, Edmonton, and the Cock Tavern, Palmers Green, particularly during peak hours, has been aggravated by the recent decision to shut off all intersections on this stretch of road; and whether he will restore the previous position or have one or two intersections allowed with automatically operated traffic signals correctly adjusted for peak periods.

Mr. Swingler

The closure on 1st April of four gaps in the central reservation of the North Circular Road in Edmonton has been effected by the police, with the consent of the other authorities concerned, for the purpose of carrying out an experimental scheme of traffic control. The gap opposite Ashley Gardens was re-opened on 26th April for limited use.
