HC Deb 14 June 1961 vol 642 cc45-6W
Dr. Bennett

asked the Minister of Transport whether, in view of the doubling of road traffic in the Fareham area between 1938 and 1954 and the further increase since 1954, he will consider urgently the suggestion put to his Department by the hon. Member for Gosport and Fareham late in 1960, that the new south coast trunk road be routed south of Fareham and close to Gosport.

Mr. Marples

As my hon. Friend knows, a traffic survey was taken last August which will enable this proposal to be evaluated. I understand that the results have now been analysed by the county council and will soon reach me.
