HC Deb 28 November 1957 vol 578 c146W
77. Mr. Teeling

asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation what plans are being made for a new highway from London to Brighton; where branch highways will lead to other south coast resorts; and when he contemplates starting and finishing this highway.

Mr. Watkinson

Possible routes are being surveyed and discussed with the local authorities concerned for a motor road which will leave the L.C.C. area at Mitcham and rejoin A.23 near Handcross, but I cannot say when the scheme will be carried out. It will not include branch highways to other south coast resorts.
