§ Mr. Michael Latham
asked the Secretary of State for Transport whether he will make a statement on his proposals to improve the A52 road at Muston Bends, near Bottesford, Leicestershire in view of the bad accident record there.
§ Mr. Horam
An improvement scheme is being designed which will replace the present sharp bends by an easy curve. Subject to the satisfactory completion of the necessary statutory procedures it is hoped that work will commence in 1981. Meanwhile, road markings and warning signs have been improved to further drivers' awareness of the need to negotiate the present bends with care.
