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 46W 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.
