HC Deb 09 December 1985 vol 88 c429W
Mr. Macfarlane

asked the Secretary of State for Transport what studies his Department has made into the effects of providing lighting on motorways; and if any research has been carried out into the effectiveness of motorway lighting in the prevention of accidents.

Mrs. Chalker

Research from a number of countries has indicated extremely variable reductions in accidents due to motorway lighting and the transport and road research laboratory is currently undertaking a study which should be completed early in 1986.
