asked the Secretary of State for Transport what is his policy towards the incorporation in roundabout schemes of cycle routes with sight lines; and what is his policy towards the use of kerbs to divide cycle paths from pedestrian walkways.

I continue to look for suitable solutions whenever the question of cycle routes arises in roundabout schemes.

Advice on kerbs to divide cycle tracks from pedestrian ways is contained in "Local Transport Note 1/78 Ways of Helping Cyclists in Built-up Areas". A copy of this has been deposited in the Library.

asked the Secretary of State for Transport what consideration he will give to facilities for cyclists and pedestrians in assessing the outcome of the public inquiry into the Crooked Billet roundabout, Walthamstow.

The inspector conducting the inquiry will report on the proposed cycling and pedestrian facilities, as he will on other relevant issues. In conjunction with my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for the Environment I shall fully consider all aspects of his report when I receive it.
