HC Deb 26 February 1930 vol 235 c2246
66. Commander SOUTHBY

asked the Minister of Transport whether in view of the proposal to make a by-pass road to avoid Ewell, he will consider the advisability of dealing with the town of Epsom at the same time and make a road which will by-pass both Ewell and Epsom?


The suggestion put forward by the hon. and gallant Member was fully considered before the line of the Ewell by-pass was determined.

Commander SOUTHBY

In view of the strong feeling on the subject is it possible for the hon. Gentleman to send a representative to inspect this road again with a view to the matter being reconsidered?


All the local authorities concerned are, I believe, in communication with the Ministry, and their representations have been and will be considered. I would point out that the congestion of traffic in Epsom High Street, particularly on race days, will be materially relieved by the new road which will be opened shortly.
