§ Mr. Spence
asked the Secretary of State for Transport what consultations he had before deciding to eliminate the acceleration lane at the junction of the A64 and Flaxton Lane End and Bull Moor Lane; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mrs. Chalker
No consultations were carried out for this proposal which is a small improvement to a junction with the A64 trunk road, made necessary for reasons of road safety. The present layout of the junction provides an acceleration lane with a bus stop along its length. Our intention is to remove the acceleration lane and provide a bus layby instead, to eliminate the conflicting traffic movements and a potential hazard.
