§ Mr. David Walder
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment how many casualties, and in which categories, have occurred on the Clitheroe-Whalley bypass since its inception; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Peyton
Following are the figures for the period from opening on 4th January 1971 to 31st May 1973:
Fatal injuries 4 Serious injuries 4 Slight injuries 31
This represents approximately 0.6 casualties per million vehicle miles.
The corresponding figure for all rural "A" roads in Great Britain in 1972 was 1.6.
