§ 68. Captain GARRO-JONES
asked the Minister of Transport whether his attention has been drawn to the Sutton by-pass road, which is constructed of diagonally laid strips of concrete, each of which is of a convex surface; whether he considers that this is a satisfactory form of construction; and, if not, if he will state the probable cost of relaying the road?
§ The MINISTER of TRANSPORT (Colonel Ashley)
I am aware of the form of construction adopted for the Sutton by-pass road, but am not prepared to formulate conclusions until the road has been subjected to a longer test under traffic.
§ Captain BRASS
Would my right hon. Friend accompany me on that road so as to see that the minimum speed which is comfortable is 50 miles an hour?
§ Colonel ASHLEY
I am not sure, owing to the experiences of my hon. and gallant Friend with the police.
