HC Deb 19 December 1989 vol 164 cc196-7W
Mr. Vaz

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what account he takes of cyclists' needs in considering major new road schemes planned by his Department; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Atkins

In planning new trunk roads and improving existing ones, we consider the needs of cyclists for safe and convenient routes. Particular attention is paid to the design of junctions and consequent modifications to the local road network. Detailed guidance is published in our local transport notes series and through our traffic advisory leaflets. Copies have been placed in the Library.
