HC Deb 08 May 1968 vol 764 c78W
Mr. Dobson

asked the Minister of Transport (1) what action he proposes to take to prevent hold-ups to traffic, and danger to children, resulting from the work being started this month on the Bristol Parkway at Eastville Park, Bristol;

(2) what are the results of the discussions he has had with Bristol Corporation, with a view to minimising the dislocation of traffic and road-danger hazards caused by work starting on the Eastville Park section of Bristol Parkway; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Bob Brown

Bristol City Council, as the highway authority, are responsible for taking the necessary steps to minimise dislocation of traffic and to guard against danger to pedestrians during construction of this section of the Parkway.

Specific discussions with them were not called for since they are well aware of their obligations.
