§ 67. Mr. Russell
asked the Minister of Transport if he will extend the system of prohibiting right-hand turns so that wherever possible, at busy intersections, vehicles travelling in opposite directions will be prevented from turning right at the same cross-roads, thus eliminating congestion caused by the two streams of turning vehicles blocking one another.
§ Vice-Admiral Hughes Hallett
We have this very much in mind in London and have already announced proposals for several traffic schemes which include the prohibition of right-hand turns. More are under consideration. Our one-way schemes themselves make a big contribution to the elimination of this difficulty.
Outside the London Traffic Area this is a matter for local authorities.
