§ 50. Mrs. COPELAND
asked the Minister of Transport whether, with the view of relieving the congestion of traffic in Bond Street, he will consider a project for a tunnel between the Green Park arid Oxford Street so as to allow people who wish to reach the more distant parts of the city to do so by the most direct route?
§ Mr. HORE-BELISHA
A few years ago consideration was given to a proposal to construct a tunnel from the Mall to Berkeley Square, but the proposal was abandoned because of the extent to which it would interfere with the Green Park. My hon. Friend's suggestion appears likely to be open to the same objection.
Is it not a fact that the congestion in Bond Street is entirely due to the parking of vehicles on both sides?
