§ 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?
§ Mr. GOSLING
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.
§ 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?
