§ Mr. Alexander
asked the Secretary of State for Transport if he will consider seeking to require coloured lines to be painted in the middle of roads in built-up areas in order to indicate to drivers that they are driving in built-up areas, during hours of darkness.
§ Mrs. Chalker
No. Coloured lines would be less conspicuous than the present white ones and differentiation between colours would be very difficult, especially with the lighting systems in current use.
