§ 37. Mr. Grimond
asked the Minister of Transport if he has given further consideration to the provision of extra road space either by using abandoned railway lines or covering over existing lines.
§ Mr. Marples
There are at present six road schemes which involve the use of abandoned railway lines and one where it is proposed to build on viaduct over a railway line in operation. I shall continue to approve such schemes where they are justified on economic and engineering grounds.
