HC Deb 15 July 1924 vol 176 cc202-3
35. Mr. BECKER

asked the Minister of Transport when the Chertsey arterial road will be continued across the Thames; and where it is proposed to place the new bridge?


As I informed the hon. Member on the 27th May, no definite agreement has yet been reached with the road authorities for the actual construction of the new Chertsey road beyond the section already formed in Chiswick. Two new bridges will be required across the Thames—one to connect the Lower Richmond Road with the section of new road in Chiswick—and another in the neighbourhood of the present railway bridge at Richmond.


What is stopping this? Will steps be taken to proceed this year or early next year?


Negotiations are going on.

Lieut.-Colonel JAMES

Is it not a fact that the construction of these bridges would give a great deal of employment to men who are at present unemployed?


It would be a very useful help.
