68. Dr. Bennett
asked the Minister of Transport what accidents have taken place so far this year on A.27 in the areas of Paulsgrove and Portchester; and if he will reconsider his refusal to allocate funds for radical alterations to this stream of traffic, notably through Portchester.147W
§ Mr. Hay
There have been seventeen accidents involving injuries and thirty accidents involving damage only. Through traffic will be taken off this section of A.27 when part of the South Coast Road near Portchester is constructed. I cannot however say when it will be possible to include this very large scheme in the road programme.
