HC Deb 06 April 1987 vol 114 c51W
Mr. Tony Banks

asked the Secretary of State for Transport how many accident black spots have been identified in London by his Department; if he will list them by borough; and what estimate he has of the total costs of remedial work necessary to remove the need for such identification.

Mr. Peter Bottomley

The London accident analysis unit, as the body responsible for processing and making available the accident data collected by the police, can provide the hon. Member with particular analysis of borough accidents he needs.

The Department works closely with the unit to make London's trunk roads as safe as possible.

We are expanding our programme of accident prevention schemes and our current studies are pinpointing locations where measures will be most effective. The kind of estimate the hon. Member seeks is not practicable.
