HC Deb 10 December 1976 vol 922 c392W
Mr. Wigley

asked the Secretary of State for Transport what criteria are regarded by his Department as critical for decisions relative to the placing of pedestrian crossings on trunk roads.

Mr. Horam

Principally, conditions relating to the site, the extent of pedestrian need, and the quantity of traffic on the road. Guidance on these factors is contained in Circular Roads 19/74 addressed to local authorities in England and Wales; I am sending a copy to the hon. Member.
