asked the Minister of Transport how many accidents have occurred at the double bend on A.3 south of Liphook at the point where the road goes under the main railway line; and what steps he proposes to take to minimise the risk of future accidents at this point.
During the three years, 1959–61, six accidents have been reported to the police. In three of these accidents no one was injured; in the other three, one person was killed, four seriously injured and two slightly injured. The road surface was re-dressed with non-skid stone in August, 1961, and I am glad to say that I have had no reports of any accidents since then. The ultimate solution is to by-pass this section of road, but that must be a long term project.
