HC Deb 01 May 1884 vol 287 c1038

asked the Chairman of the Metropolitan Board of Works, Whether his attention has been directed to the dangerously congested state of the traffic at Knightsbridge; and, whether he can make any suggestion for relieving it?


If I am correct in assuming that the part of Knightsbridge referred to by my noble Friend is that close to Albert Gate, I may inform him that my attention has been called to a congestion of traffic there, although I should not go so far as to speak of it as dangerous. Looking, however, to other more urgent improvements which the Metropolitan Board is called upon to carry out, and to the great expense which widening the Knightsbridge Road would involve, I am not, at the present time, prepared to offer any suggestion for relieving the traffic there.
