Mr. Gresham Cooke
asked the Minister of Transport what plans he has for improving road communications between London Airport and Gatwick Airport.
§ Mr. Marples
Communications will be progressively improved by the comple-188W tion of M.4 and later by the construction of the London-Crawley Motorway together with other smaller schemes. In the long term the South Orbital Road in association with the London-Crawley Motorway should provide a more direct route between the two airports.
