§ Captain Kerby
asked the Minister of Transport if he is aware that if Scheme A, B, or C, for the Adur Bridge is approved, the vibration and noise from the proposed 90 feet wide dual carriageway bridge approach, sited within 65 yards of St. Nicholas Church, will seriously damage this 1,000 years old church in Old Shoreham; and if he will direct that the bridge line shall come no nearer than 350 yards north of the church.
§ Mr. Marples
I have not yet reached any conclusion about the site for a new bridge. But I can assure my hon. and gallant Friend that I fully appreciate the need to avoid damage to St. Nicholas Church.
No final decision can be made until my proposals have been advertised as a draft Order under the Highways Act, 1959, and any objections have been considered.
