HC Deb 11 July 1928 vol 219 c2233

asked the Minister of Transport whether his attention has been called to the fact that the bridge over the river at Newhaven, belonging to the Southern Railway Company, has recently had a restriction placed upon it whereby vehicles with over eight-ton loads are debarred from passing over the river, except those belonging to the railway company, and also trains belonging to the Southern Railway Company; and whether he will take steps to secure the removal of this restriction, in view of the fact that this is the only road through Newhaven and seriously affects the position of haulage contractors and traders from other parts of the country?

Colonel ASHLEY

My attention had not previously been drawn to the restriction placed upon traffic over this bridge, but I am causing inquiries to be made and will communicate with my hon. Friend on the subject in due course.
