HC Deb 08 July 1996 vol 281 cc65-6W
28. Mr. Simon Hughes

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what is the latest timetable for introducing further red routes in London and for consultation with residential and business occupiers along proposed routes. [34711]

Mr. Norris

The Traffic Director for London is responsible for co-ordinating the introduction of the red route network. Before red routes are introduced, all frontagers are consulted, and full consideration is given to how their needs can best be met. The latest timetable for introducing red routes is contained in the Traffic Director's 1995–96 annual report, a copy of which is in the Library. The aim is to have the network operational by the year 2000.
