HC Deb 30 April 1969 vol 782 cc256-7W
Mr. Speed

asked the Minister of Transport what action he proposes to take to reduce the number of accidents on the A5 trunk road between Grendon and the Tamworth borough boundary.

Mr. Marsh

Pedestrian barriers have already been put up at the end of the footpath and on the central reserve near Vicarage Close in Dordon. I am also considering the imposition of a 50 m.p.h. speed limit on this length and the installation of street lighting between Birch Coppice Colliery and Grendon roundabout. At Grendon roundabout a "Reduce Speed Now" sign will be put up and a direction sign resited; the present 3-lane road markings will be terminated at a greater distance from the traffic island and a skid test will be carried out on the road surface. I am also considering whether any further measures can be introduced to increase the safety of pedestrians.
