HC Deb 22 July 1959 vol 609 cc116-7W
36. Wing Commander Bullus

asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation whether he has yet reached a conclusion to speed up plans for the making of certain roads in London throughways for traffic.

Mr. Watkinson

I am starting an experiment of this kind on roads outside towns. The necessary order will be made shortly, and the experiment will start at the beginning of August on stretches of the trunk roads from London to Yarmouth, Folkestone, Brighton and Portsmouth. Providing no major difficulties then arise, I hope to extend the clearways idea to roads in London and other cities.
