HC Deb 16 January 1978 vol 942 c12W
Mr. Maxwell-Hyslop

asked the Secretary of State for Transport whether his Department is opposed on principle to pedestrian crossings in areas subject to (a) 50 m.p.h. and (b) 40 m.p.h. speed limits.

Mr. Horam

No. Pedestrian crossings are installed on all types of road except motorways, whatever the speed limit; but where the limit exceeds 40 m.p.h. zebra crossings are rarely suitable and pelicans are preferred.
