HC Deb 19 November 1936 vol 317 cc1929-30W
Lieut.-Commander TUFNELL

asked the Minister of Transport what is the number and situation of level crossings on the roads which he is taking over in the Trunk Roads Bill; and whether he will give an undertaking to take steps to do away with these crossings at the earliest opportunity after he obtains the necessary powers?

Captain PLUGGE

asked the Minister of Transport how many level crossings and toll bridges are situated on the trunk roads which he proposes to take over; and whether he can give an undertaking that these will be eliminated by 1940?


I understand that there are three toll bridges and one toll ferry on roads described in the first schedule to the Trunk Roads Bill; I have not yet obtained a return of the number of level crossings. If the Bill becomes law I shall certainly devote attention to the relative need of improvements of all kinds.
