HC Deb 10 March 1938 vol 332 c2117
68. Mr. McEntee

asked the Minister of Transport what progress is being made with the Dobbs Weir—Walthamstow Viaduct road scheme?

The Minister of Transport (Mr. Burgin)

I assume that the hon. Member's question relates to the proposed road between Dobbs Weir and the North Circular road in Walthamstow. Parts of the route in the urban district of Chingford have already been constructed with provision for widening at a later date. The Essex County Council have taken steps to safeguard the line of route north of Chingford, but I understand that construction is not contemplated on this section at present.

Mr. McEntee

Can the right hon. Gentleman give any indication as to when the remainder of the road will be completed?

Mr. Burgin

The road is in five sections. The situation is somewhat complicated; perhaps the hon. Member will have a word with me.
