§ Mr. Russell
asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation his plans for connecting the first section of the new motorway, when completed, with the Watford by-pass.
§ Mr. Watkinson
From a point on the St. Albans By-pass where it crosses the Hemel Hempstead—St. Albans Road (A.414) at Beech Tree, a 5-mile motorway spur is being constructed in a south-south-easterly direction to link with the Watford By-pass (A.41) at Aldenham. Work began in July and is due to be completed by the end of 1959.
