HC Deb 11 January 1993 vol 216 c517W
Mr. Thurnham

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport how much his Department has spent on traffic calming measures in each of the last three years; and what savings in deaths and serious injuries on roads are estimated to have resulted.

Mr. Kenneth Carlisle

Traffic calming is one part of a range of measures used in undertaking accident remedial schemes. The information requested is not available centrally, and could be collected only at disproportionate cost.

Mr. Gareth Wardell

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport when he intends to introduce the regulations enabling local authorities to introduce traffic calming measures on class A roads.

Mr. Kenneth Carlisle

We hope to lay traffic calming regulations before the House in the new year. These will apply to class A as well as to other roads.
