HC Deb 15 January 1990 vol 165 cc41-2W
44. Mr. Ward

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what restrictions he proposes to apply to his proposed red routes; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Atkins

The basis of our proposal is that there should be no stopping on the red routes during peak periods. Stopping, loading and unloading may be permitted at certain times at some strictly limited and clearly marked places where the flow of traffic would not be impeded. Consideration will be given to legitimate interests of frontages, and to the case for exemptions, which will need to be minimised. Final decisions will be taken in the light of consultation and a pilot scheme starting in summer 1990.

45. Mr. Amos

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport how many road miles will be involved in the priority route network announced in December.

Mr. Atkins

The network proposed in the "Traffic in London" discussion document covers approximately 300 miles of roads.
