HC Deb 08 April 1963 vol 675 cc107-8W
95. Mr. Lubbock

asked the Minister of Aviation what progress has been made with plans for a rapid economic and reliable ground transport link between the centre of London and London, Heathrow, Airport.

Mr. Marten

An Interdepartmental Committee, including representatives of the airlines, railways and local planning authorities is examining the problem of road and rail access to Heathrow to see what improvements can be made. I can say now that road communications between central London and Heathrow will be much improved by the construction of the new section of the South Wales motorway which will provide a fast motorway route from the Chiswick flyover direct to the airport.

This work is due to be completed by December, 1964.
