§ Mr. Arthur Lewis
asked the Minister of Transport whether she is aware of the danger to motorists and pedestrians at the road junction at Hamfrith Road Bridge and Forest Lane, Stratford, E.15; why she will not support the installation of mirrors; and when her Department's inspectors visited the site.
§ Mr. John Morris
Because of restricted visibility, Hamfrith Road has a Halt Major Road Ahead" sign at its junction with Forest Lane. Traffic mirrors can mislead drivers and reflection of the sun or of headlights can cause positive danger.
There has been no recent occasion for a visit to this site by a Ministry engineer.
