§ Dr. Marshall
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment how many accidents have occurred during the past five years on the A645 near the bend at the junction of the road to Pollington, near Goole; and what steps he is taking to make this accident black spot less hazardous.
§ Mr. Peyton
For the quarter-mile length of A635 east of the junction the figures are:
Year Accidents 1967 5 1968 1 1969 2 1970 2 1971 (up to 28th July) 5
It is proposed to improve the bend as part of the side road alterations associated with the South of Ferrybridge-Rawcliffe section of M62, for which a public inquiry is to be held on 10th August. It is expected that M62 will relieve A645 of all through traffic.
