HC Deb 18 May 1971 vol 817 cc274-5W
Mr. Small

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment on what safety grounds he authorised a footway to be signed to cross at road level the motorway designed section of the Carlisle to Glasgow trunk road A74, on the extension of M6, just north of Greymoorhill intersection.

Mr. Michael Heseltine

Pedestrians have right of access to all trunk roads. There was a public footpath 800 yards north of the Greymoorhill motorway intersection and as visibility is good and use by pedestrians is slight it has been allowed to remain, suitably signed.
