HC Deb 10 April 1964 vol 692 cc253-4W
Mr. Sydney Irving

asked the Minister of Transport what progress is being made with the provision of a South Orbital Road for the traffic from the Dartford—Purfleet Tunnel; and when he expects work to commence.

Mr. Marples

Work should start in the autumn of 1965. I am planning to start the adjoining section from the Dartford Diversion to the A.20 in 1968–69.
