Mr. Matthew Taylor: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what measures he is taking to ensure that the design, funding and implementation of comprehensive traffic measures in an area to be bypassed proceed on the same timetable, and are given the same priority, as the bypass itself. 
Mr. Watts: It is for local highway authorities to decide the timing and content of proposals for traffic measures in bypassed towns and villages. My Department encourages authorities to take full advantage of the opportunities that new bypasses offer. In recent years, we have funded the bypass demonstration project, dedicated to promoting good practice in this area.
Mrs. Anne Campbell: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, pursuant to his answer of 28 October, Official Report, column 44, to which group of road users the education, publicity and research programmes will be targeted. 
Mr. Bowis: The Department's education, publicity and research programmes are aimed at all road users, helping to promote road safety by encouraging everyone to adopt the same rules and behave in a responsible manner when using the roads.
