To ask the Secretary of State for Transport whether his Department is responsible for, or was consulted about, the new traffic lights at the junction of Gaden way and St. Georges road, London SE1; what was the cost of the installation; what representations he has received about its effect on traffic flows from both directions; and if he will make a statement.

The traffic lighting scheme in question, costing £18,600, is the responsibility of the London borough of Southwark, as the local highway authority, and was devised in association with the traffic control systems unit.The Department was consulted about the proposal as St. George's road is a designated road. The Department has not received any representations about the scheme.
