HC Deb 05 July 1932 vol 268 cc262-3W

asked the Minister of Transport the number of level crossings that have been replaced by bridges or tunnels during the past two years, respectively; and the number at present being replaced or for which replacement has been approved?


Works of this nature usually form part of larger improvement schemes which require several years for their execution. It would not be possible to obtain the number of level crossings actually replaced during the two years referred to in the question, or now in process of replacement, without making inquiries from all highway authorities through the divisional officers of the Department. I hope, therefore, that my hon. Friend will not press for this return.
