HC Deb 20 March 1930 vol 236 cc2118-9W

asked the Minister of Transport if the by-pass road he has approved for Leatherhead includes any provision whereby the traffic from Guildford to Epsom may avoid the existing narrow bridge over the Mole and the narrow streets and dangerous cross-roads on the Epsom side of that river; and, if not, how he proposes to deal with the volume of traffic using that route, especially on days when races are being held at Epsom?


The bypass scheme in its complete form makes provision for diverting the traffic to which my hon. Friend refers, but it is unlikely that the entire project will be carried out simultaneously by the county council, and the construction of the particular section in question may be deferred until the more urgently needed parts of the by-pass have been con-constructed.
