§ 51. Major HARVEY (for Sir JOSEPH LAMB)
asked the Minister of Transport what new constructional work is now in progress on the Chiswick-Chertsey arterial road and, approximately, how many men are at present employed; when tenders will be let for the new bridges at Mortlake and Richmond, sanctioned for this road in the Middlesex and Surrey Thames Bridges Act, 1928; and when work will be started on the section of the road between Twickenham and Chertsey?
§ Mr. HERBERT MORRISON
The new road from Clifford Avenue to the proposed new bridge at Mortlake (Chiswick) is on the point of completion, and only 11 men are still employed thereon. The construction of the new road from the proposed new bridge at Richmond to Kew Road is in progress and 33 men are employed on this section. It is hoped to invite tenders for the new bridge at Mortlake (Chiswick) within the next few weeks, and for the new bridge at Richmond by August. No proposals have been submitted by the county council with respect to the section of road between Twickenham and Chertsey.
