HC Deb 01 July 1964 vol 697 cc217-8W
78. Mr. Jay

asked the Minister of Transport what plans he has for future motorways through inner London areas; what route he proposes within London for the Dover radial extension; and whether he contemplates the extension across the Thames of the west cross route from Holland Park Avenue to the Embankment.

Mr. Marples

The L.C.C. as highway improvement authority are primarily responsible for considering the need for new roads in the inner London area. An overall plan for highways will be dependent on the full working out of the London Traffic Survey. Meanwhile the L.C.C. are with my encouragement investigating a route for the Dover Radial Extension that would run along the line of the railway between Falcon-wood and Kidbrooke. They have also, with my agreement, appointed consultants for a feasibility study of a possible extension of the West Cross Route south of the Thames.
