HC Deb 14 July 1954 vol 530 c458
50. Mr. Ernest Davies

asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation when it is anticipated that work will start on the construction of a dual carriageway on the Great Cambridge Road through Edmonton and Enfield.

Mr. Molson

I expect that work will start before the end of this year on the provision of dual carriageways on a section of the Great Cambridge Road through Edmonton. It is hoped to deal subsequently with the Enfield section.

Mr. Davies

What does the Minister mean by "subsequently"? Why cannot the work on a whole stretch be commenced at the same time? Why must it be done in two stages, in view of the fact that there has been an increase in the number of fatalities along this road only recently?

Mr. Molson

There is not enough money available to undertake the whole of the work at the same time.
