HC Deb 06 April 1925 vol 182 cc1840-1W

asked the Minister of Transport if he is aware that the state of the roads between Beachy Head and Birling Gap, and between Beachy Head and Seaford, upon which there is a very large volume of traffic, both of private cars and public motor vehicles, is such that it constitutes a serious danger to passengers and persons using these roads; and whether he will have the roads inspected with a view to their being put into an efficient state of repair?

Colonel ASHLEY

The condition of these and other roads in the same rural district has engaged the attention of my staff for some time past. With financial assistance from my Department local road improvement schemes are already in progress estimated to cost upwards of £26,000, and I will consult the responsible highway authority as to the possibility of extending the programme.
