HC Deb 17 March 1925 vol 181 cc2066-7

asked the Minister of Transport whether he is aware that the new roads in the county of Middlesex, Cambridge Road and the Great West Road are not being used; if so, what is the reason for their non-use; and whether any steps are contemplated whereby these roads shall be utilised for heavy motor and other forms of transport?

Colonel ASHLEY

As far as my observation goes, these roads, although not yet open for their entire length, are already attracting a considerable volume of traffic, which will increase when the highways are open from end to end. In the case of the Great West Road, I hope that the opening will take place at the end of May. At the London end of the New Cambridge Road completion is delayed on account of certain demolitions, which cannot be undertaken at present.
