HC Deb 23 November 1955 vol 546 cc1445-6
34. Mr. Dye

asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation what further improvements he intends to make to the trunk road A47, between King's Lynn and Norwich, in the forthcoming financial year.

Mr. Boyd-Carpenter

Improvements are now in hand, or will shortly be authorised, at Constitution Hill railway bridge, Easton cross roads and Scanning cross roads. Further minor improvements will be carried out next year.

Mr. Dye

Is the Minister aware that the trunk road is used by a great number of people who come to Norfolk for the first time, that it is a source of great danger to them and that a large number of accidents take place there every summer?

Mr. Boyd-Carpenter

There is a good deal of force in that. We are trying to take remedial measures.
