HC Deb 07 April 1971 vol 815 c151W
Sir R. Russell

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will consider making all road junctions into box-junctions, without erecting any warning notices, but merely relying on markings in the road, thus implementing paragraph 74 of the Highway Code.

Mr. Eldon Griffiths

Upright signs for box-junctions are gradually being discarded as public understanding grows in each area. The distinctive value of the marking at difficult sites would be lost if it were used at all junctions and the cost would not be justified where there is little congestion.
