HC Deb 31 July 1931 vol 255 c2648W

asked the Minister of Transport if his attention has been called to the state of the road between Charlton village and Blackheath Common; and whether he will ascertain what action the local authority proposes to take?


I assume that my hon. Friend refers to Charlton Road (Route B.210). My attention had not previously been called to the state of the section of the road referred to, but I have ascertained that a new water main has been recently laid under this road, as a result of which there has been a certain amount of subsidence. The council have patched the road temporarily and propose to lay a concrete surface when conditions are suitable.
