HC Deb 07 April 1971 vol 815 c151W
66. Mr. Dykes

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will initiate discussions with local authorities, the police, traffic agencies and other interested parties on stricter and more uniform road lane demarcations in urban areas, and the replacement of broken line delineations with continuous strips.

Mr. Eldon Griffiths

No, we already give detailed advice to local authorities to ensure consistency. Solid lines for lane markings would conflict with other markings, cost more and impede international agreement.
