HC Deb 05 July 1983 vol 45 cc85-6W
Mr. Alton

asked the Secretary of State for Transport when he intends to bring into effect vie sections of the Transport Act which enable local authorities to install speed humps in residential roads.

Mrs. Chalker

Very shortly.

Mr. Adley

asked the Secretary of State for Transport what information he has as to the number or road humps installed to date by county councils within their own areas following the passing of the relevant legislation; and what steps he is taking to encourage county councils to use road humps.

Mrs. Chalker

The legislation in the Transport Act 1981 will be brought into operation very shortly. We shall be issuing a circular "Roads" and a technical advice note to local highway authorities, which will give guidance on the circumstances in which road humps should be used.
