HC Deb 22 April 1926 vol 194 c1384

asked the Minister of Transport what is the present position of the proposed widening scheme at Ferry Lane, connecting Tottenham with Walthamstow?

The MINISTER of TRANSPORT (Colonel Ashley)

Considerable progress has been made with the widening of Ferry Lane in Walthamstow and with the reconstruction of the Walthamstow Council's tramway track. The improvement of the length of Ferry Lane in Tottenham, however, still remains unfortunately in suspense, no agreement having yet been reached upon the question of the possible connection of the tramways on the Middlesex and Essex sides of the River Lea. There is reason to hope that the work executed in Walthamstow may conduce towards- the settlement of the outstanding question in Tottenham, and to enable the improvement to be completed.
