HC Deb 24 April 1989 vol 151 cc439-40W
22. Mr. Bowis

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what steps he is taking to improve traffic flow on the main routes into London.

Mr. Peter Bottomley

Traffic flows on the network will benefit from our support to a range of traffic management measures throughout London, including advanced and responsive urban traffic control systems and more effective control of parking and from our promotion of safe, efficient and attractive public transport services.

We are helping to improve the flow of traffic on the strategic London road network through the national trunk road programme in London and small improvement schemes.

We are providing financial support to appropriate borough road schemes and have issued a traffic management guidance circular to the boroughs.
