§ 63. Mr. Peter Mills
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if, in view of the dangers on the A30 at Bridestowe, Devon, he will provide a footbridge or pedestrian crossing for the village.
§ Mr. Eldon Griffiths
A count of traffic flows on the A30 at Bridestowe taken last 26th November showed peak hour averages of 36 pedestrians and 198 vehicles. These flows are too low to justify either a pedestrian crossing or a footbridge.
§ 62. Mr. Peter Mills
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if, in view of the latest accident on the A30 at 380W Bridestowe, Devon, he will make an early start on the proposed bypass for this village.
§ Mr. Michael Heseltine
I was very sorry to hear of the accident on 27th January (alleged to be due to brake-failure of a lorry) and offer my sympathy to those suffering from its results. I confirm my undertaking of last December to consider a scheme to bypass Bridestowe for inclusion in a future extension of the preparation pool.
