HC Deb 23 January 1951 vol 483 cc14-5
28. Mr. John Hay

asked the Minister of Works when the road improvement works to the Outer Circle, Regent's Park, will be completed.

Mr. Stokes

Road repair work in the Outer Circle should be finished early in March.

Mr. Hay

Does the right hon. Gentleman realise that traffic passing from the north and accustomed to using the Outer Circle has for some months past been diverted into Park Road, with consequent tremendous congestion late in the evening?

Mr. Stokes

I know, but we were unfortunate; work was started in the last days of August and then, while part of the road was opened up, there were considerable downpours of rain and the road had to be left until it had dried out. We are being as quick as we can.
