HC Deb 27 January 1969 vol 776 cc223-4W
91. Mr. Prior

asked the Minister of Transport if he will consider switching the direction of traffic on motorways, to enable both slow lanes to be next to the centre reservation and both fast lanes to be on the outside.

Mr. Bob Brown

No. This would make it impossible to enter and leave the motorway by the slow lane. Attempts to do so through the fast lane would be highly dangerous, even with the necessary reconstruction of present slip roads.
