London Bus Routes

Lord Berkeley asked Her Majesty's Government:

Baroness Hayman: The Department, London Transport and the boroughs do not record information on the total length of roads used by scheduled buses in London. However, the most important bus routes in London--those carrying over 15 buses per hour and some linking routes--are in the London bus priority network or form part of the red route network. The total length of these bus routes is around 840 miles.

Hammersmith Bridge

Lord Brabazon of Tara asked Her Majesty's Government:

Baroness Hayman: Arrangements for reopening Hammersmith Bridge are the responsibility of the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham.

I understand that the borough's programme of strengthening work is due to be completed by the end of the summer of 1999. Whilst the works are in hand, the borough intends to initiate discussions on the future use of the bridge.

Road Safety: Unpublished Research

Lord Walton of Detchant asked Her Majesty's Government:

Baroness Hayman: It is normal practice for the final reports of research projects to be published, or, if they are of limited interest, to be made available on demand, except in rare cases where there are particular reasons--such as commercial confidentiality--not to do so. Whilst projects are in progress a number of interim reports may be produced which are normally unpublished, but the contents of these are usually included in the published final reports. The department is always happy to assist in the provision of results of research projects but a complete list of unpublished reports over the past 10 years is not available and could only be compiled at disproportionate cost.
