HC Deb 01 April 1958 vol 585 c132W
Sir A. Bossom

asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation what is his estimate of the cost of the proposed overhead road from Chiswick to Slough; and how long it will be before this road can be used.

Mr. Watkinson

Roughly £11 million, which includes the cost of the whole road to Slough as well as the overhead portion, about 1½ miles. The work will be carried out as rapidly as possible, but I cannot say how long it will take until the statutory procedures and other preliminary work have been completed.
