HC Deb 13 July 1989 vol 156 c601W
Mr. Pike

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport whether his Department carries out any inspection on the maintenance of motorway signs.

Mr. Peter Bottomley

Detailed inspection and maintenance of motorway signs is carried out by the Department's agents in accordance with the frequencies set out in the Department's code of practice for routine maintenance, a copy of which is in the Library. In addition, agents' staff who travel the motorways in the couse of their duties look out for damage or other defects which require prompt attention.
