HC Deb 24 June 1935 vol 303 cc811-2
58. Mr. REMER

asked the Minister of Transport whether, with a view to remedying the traffic congestion and delays in King William Street, Queen Street, and Queen Victoria Street, he will suggest to the Corporation of the City of London the widening of Thames Street from Tower Hill to Blackfriars?

Captain A. HUDSON

This matter in its general aspect is already, I understand, under the consideration of the Corporation of the City of London. The possible means of relieving congestion in these streets are also being closely studied as part of the survey of highway developments required in the London area which my right hon. Friend recently announced.


What steps does the Minister intend to take to see that the City Council get on with their work considerably faster than they have done in the past few years, as this is causing great inconvenience in the City of London?

Captain HUDSON

I think my answer covered that point. The matter is being inquired into under the general survey.


Is my hon. and gallant Friend aware that the bottle neck part of Queen Victoria Street will in due course be demolished and so widened as to take four proper rows of traffic instead of three as at present?

Captain HUDSON

I am glad to hear that.
