HC Deb 29 July 1976 vol 916 cc352-3W
Mr. Tom King

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he has yet received, or otherwise when he expects to receive, the report from the Transport and Road Research Laboratory on the use of ramps in the road as a means of slowing traffic in suitable areas.

Dr. Gilbert

The only research results so far available from trials on public roads are the preliminary findings from an installation in Oxford. I am sending the hon. Member a relevant leaflet. Further field trials will be carried out at Norwich, where a site is in preparation, and in Haringey, Kensington and Glasgow. Other sites may be selected later. I cannot yet say when we shall be in a position to publish a general report.
