HC Deb 15 July 1929 vol 230 cc44-5W

asked the Minister of Transport if his attention has been called to a scheme for a by-pass road proposed in order to relieve the congestion at the level crossing on the main London-Kingston road, involving acquisition of property and considerable expenditure; and whether he is prepared to co-operate with the highway authorities concerned in a scheme to deal with the level crossing and so remove the necessity for the proposed by-pass road and impose upon the railway company recognition of the potential liability devolving upon them under Section 22 of the Wimbledon and Croydon Act, 1853?
