HC Deb 27 July 1960 vol 627 c142W
47. Mr. C. Osborne

asked the Minister of Transport if he will make a statement on the proposed direct road from Immingham to Grimsby which has been under Governmental consideration for nearly 40 years; and why it cannot be started.

Mr. Hay

This road, which would serve the industrial area between Grimsby and Immingham, would be of purely local benefit. It would be a classified road and we have informed the highway authorities that we cannot yet find a place for it in our programme. If, however, those interests which would benefit from the road felt able to contribute to its cost, we should reconsider the matter.
