§ Mr. Alton
asked the Secretary of State for Transport when he intends to bring into effect vie sections of the Transport Act which enable local authorities to install speed humps in residential roads.
§ Mrs. Chalker
The legislation in the Transport Act 1981 will be brought into operation very shortly. We shall be issuing a circular "Roads" and a technical advice note to local highway authorities, which will give guidance on the circumstances in which road humps should be used.
