HC Deb 01 July 1924 vol 175 c1128
67. Mr. MILLS

asked the Minister of Transport if he is aware that by-pass roads from Eltham to Welling, which were partially completed two years ago, are still uncompleted; and will be expedite their completion?


The completion of the Shooters Hill By-Pass and the South Circular Road, which will connect Eltham to Welling, has been delayed by the impossibility of securing vacant possession of buildings obstructing the line of road. Some progress has already been made in clearing the line, and it is hoped that means are now in sight for overcoming the housing difficulty, which is the principal obstacle to progress.
