HC Deb 15 December 1954 vol 535 cc152-3W
93. Mr. J. Johnson

asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation whether he will consider the possibility of converting the old Great Central Railway permanent way from Marylebone to Rugby into a modern trunk road; and what he estimates to be the approximate cost of such an operation.

Mr. Boyd-Carpenter

No. The British Transport Commission, who are responsible for this railway, regard it as an important route carrying traffic which could not be diverted to alternative routes.
