HC Deb 19 June 1930 vol 240 c590W

asked the Minister of Transport the finished minimum width of the carriageway and footpaths in Horse-ferry Road between the buildings now erected or being erected opposite Lambeth Bridge; whether he has obtained from the London Traffic Advisory Committee a report as to the improvements that will be necessary in Horseferry Road, Rochester Row, Marsham Street, Strutton Ground, and other roads in Westminster, to provide for the traffic that will flow into them on the opening of Lambeth Bridge; and, if not, whether he will obtain such report and invite the committee to negotiate with the responsible authorities the carrying out of these works in advance of the opening of the bridge?


The width of the carriageway and footpaths in Horseferry Road between the buildings opposite Lambeth Bridge is 60 feet. The London and Home Counties Traffic Advisory Committee reported on the improvements in this locality which were desirable in the interests of traffic, and on their recommendation a roundabout lay-out has been provided at the junction of Lambeth Bridge, Horseferry Road and Grosvenor Road.
