HC Deb 16 December 1970 vol 808 cc333-4W
49. Mr. Allason

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what steps he is taking to provide gantry signals for restricting speeds in special circumstances on the two-lane section of the M1 near Watford.

Mr. Michael Heseltine

A contract for the installation of remotely-controlled motorway signals on M1 between Five-ways Corner and Pepperstock (including the two-lane section near Watford) has already been let and the signals should be in use next year. The two-lane section will have signals in the central reserve.
