§ 57. Mr. Sorensen
asked the Minister of Transport what reports he has received recently in respect of the growth of traffic converging on High Road. Leytonstone; to what extent fatal and non-fatal car accidents, respectively, have increased in that thoroughfare during the past 12 months; and what long-term proposals he has considered for main road improvements in and adjoining the borough of Leyton other than the extension of the Eastern Avenue through the borough.
§ Mr. Hay
We are aware of the heavy traffic on this route. There were two fatal accidents in the last 12 months, and two in the preceding 12 months, but personal injuries increased from 114 to 121 in the corresponding periods. A roundabout is to be constructed at the junction of A.11 and A.12 at The Green Man. Long-term road improvements include the Norwich Radial and Docks relief road in the Lea Valley, and the extension of the North Circular Road to A.13, besides various classified road schemes.
