HC Deb 29 July 1946 vol 426 c74W
43. Mr. Teeling

asked the Minister of Transport when it will be possible to commence the construction of the Tamworth road bridge, Hove, together with a new central station adjacent, as envisaged before the war in 1939.

Mr. Barnes

The proposal for the reconstruction of this bridge has recently been reconsidered by the Hove Town Council, who are the responsible highway authority, but they have decided temporarily to defer it. I understand from the Southern Railway Company that the conversion of the nearby Aldrington Halt into a station is included in their postwar works programme, but must be accorded a lower priority than a number of other more urgent schemes.
