§ 21. Mr. Mathew
asked the Minister of Transport why police-escorted, abnormal, indivisible loads going from Teignmouth to London are routed via the unsuitable, hilly and twisting road, A.335, and thence through the outskirts of Sidmouth town before joining the main A.30 road.
§ Mr. Mathew
While thanking my hon. Friend for that Answer, may I ask whether he is aware that these approaches are also narrow and contribute to a very great congestion on the 160 A.30 during the summer months? In view of the increasing importance of the tourist industry in the summer months in that area, will my hon. Friend give the same priority to this tourist industry area as to other industrial areas?
