§ Mr. Lawrence
asked the Secretary of State for Transport what plans he has to extend the safety barriers and white kerb lines on the A38 between Clay Mills and the Branston interchange.
§ Mr. Kenneth Clarke
The edge of the carriageway on this road is indicated by rumble strips, which are thought to be adequate without white marking.
I have no plans to provide a central barrier because the accident record does not justify a high priority for this expenditure. However, we are looking at this section of road again as part of a general review of policy on providing central barriers on dual two-carriageway roads.
