HC Deb 05 July 1971 vol 820 c276W
Mr. David Mitchell

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment how many automatic half-barrier railway level crossings have now been modified in accordance with the recommendations of the Hixon Inquiry Report of 1968.

Mr. Peyton

Modifications of equipment, signs and road markings are virtually complete at 195 of the 205 such crossings now in use. At some of these, associated road improvements still have to be carried out.
