HC Deb 09 February 1966 vol 724 c387
23. Sir H. Kerr

asked the Minister of Transport whether the work on Mitcham Corner, Cambridge, has been reinstated in the Government programme; and when work will commence.

Mr. Swingler

Work is planned to start in June if there is satisfactory progress in land negotiations.

Sir H. Kerr

As the work is urgent, what estimate can the hon. Gentleman give of when he hopes that it will be completed?

Mr. Swingler

It is difficult to say, because a supplementary compulsory purchase order was necessary here, and how swiftly it can be started depends now on the speed of the land negotiations. But, as I said, if everything goes well, the work is planned to start in June, and it will be carried through as swiftly as possible.
