HC Deb 24 January 1969 vol 776 cc200-1W
Dr. John Dunwoody

asked the Minister of Transport if, in view of the latest fatal accident, he will take steps to ensure the safety of pedestrians and motorists in Dracaena Avenue, Falmouth.

Mr. Marsh

Following consultations with Cornwall County Council, Falmouth Borough Council and the police, I have agreed in principle to the installation of a "Pelican" push button controlled crossing in Dracaena Avenue. I have also authorised Falmouth Borough Council to order the necessary equipment in advance of formal application and approval, in order to minimise delay in installing the crossing.

I very much regret the recent accident referred to by my hon. Friend but it is unlikely that it would have been prevented by any of the safety measures proposed for Dracaena Avenue.
