HC Deb 17 January 1924 vol 169 cc296-7W

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Transport whether he is aware that the main road between Eastbourne and Bexhill, known as Under Lane, Hooe, No. A259, has been condemned by the surveyor to the Hailsham Rural Council as unsuitable for the present two-way motor traffic and pedestrian traffic; and will he take steps to see that those responsible render the road suitable for its present traffic or compel it to be closed?


I am aware that the road referred to is in an unsatisfactory condition, and it has from time to time been the subject of discussion with the highway authorities concerned. I am not in a position to exercise compulsion in the matter, but the efforts of my Department will continue to be directed towards the promotion of a satisfactory scheme for the improvement of the road.
