HC Deb 09 November 1955 vol 545 cc185-6W
51. Mr. Gresham Cooke

asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation whether he has now accepted the decision of the London County Council not to provide dual-cariageways on a section of Cromwell Road Extension now under construction between Hammersmith Bridge Road and the existing dual-carriageways of West Cromwell Road; and what steps he proposes to take to minimise the traffic delays which are likely to be caused by the bottleneck which will thus be created.

Mr. Boyd-Carpenter

The answer to the first part of the Question is that I have accepted the London County Council's views on the initial layout of this scheme. As regards the second part, the layout east of Hammersmith Bridge Road will be such that it could be further improved in due course, including the provision of a viaduct for through traffic, should conditions warrant it.

68. Mr. W. T. Williams

asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation if he will ensure that adequate provision is made for pedestrians to cross on the surface of the road on the Cromwell Road Extension at Hammersmith which is now under construction.

Mr. Boyd-Carpenter

No. The London County Council are providing subways on this section of the road.
