§ Major SALMON
asked the Minister of Transport whether his Department has come to any conclusion with regard to the experimental loop-way section on the Colnbrook by-pass road; and whether he is in a position to state when the main section of this road will be permanently reopened to traffic?
§ Mr. HERBERT MORRISON
The test sections of the experimental loop-way are kept under continuous observation, but definite conclusions cannot be reached unless the sections are subjected to traffic for an extended period. The main road is open whenever special traffic conditions, as in Ascot week, render this course desirable, but it cannot be reopened permanently whilst experimental work is in progress.
